The Eurasian lynx or Lynx lynx is a medium-sized wild cat native to Northern, Central, and Eastern Europe to Central Asia and Siberia, the Tibetan Plateau, and the Himalayas.

It inhabits temperate and boreal forests up to an elevation of 18,000 ft. Despite its wide distribution, it is threatened by habitat loss and fragmentation, poaching, and depletion of prey.

The Eurasian lynx or Lynx lynx has a relatively short, reddish, or brown coat, which tends to be more brightly colored in animals living at the southern end of its range. In winter, however, this is replaced by a much thicker coat of silky fur that varies from silver-grey to greyish brown.

The Eurasian lynx or Lynx lynx underparts of the animal, including the neck and chin, are white at all times of the year.

The fur is almost always marked with black spots, although the number and pattern of these are highly variable. Some animals do also possess dark brown stripes on the forehead and back.

Although spots tend to be more numerous in animals from southern populations, Eurasian lynx or Lynx lynx with heavily spotted fur may exist close to others with plain fur. It has powerful, relatively long legs, with large webbed and furred paws that act like snowshoes.

It does also possess a short bobbed tail with an all-black tip, black tufts of hair on its ears, and a long grey-and-white ruff.

The Eurasian lynx or Lynx lynx is the largest of the four lynx species, ranging in length from 31 to 51 in. and standing 24 to 30 in. at the shoulder. The tail measures 4.3 to 9.6 in. in length. On average, males weigh 46 lb. and females weigh 40 lb.
