How Old Can Lynx Get?
Denning and Kittens:
Lynx do not excavate (dig out) their dens, rather, they den under naturally occurring structures such as downed logs, root wads, or rock piles. In particular, lynx select den sites with large amounts of downed woody material in forest stands with lots more cover than elsewhere in the animalís home range.
Females generally den for the first time at three years of age.† Lynx mate in late winter and females locate den sites to have their kittens in mid-May. During late May and June, the mother lynx may move her kittens from the original den to a series of other den sites, often located close by.
What Big Feet You Have!
Coyotes have what is called a high foot-load meaning their feet are small compared to their body size.† However, a lynx has large feet compared to its body size therefore the feet act like snowshoes when they walk in the snow.† The high foot-load which coyotes and other animals have makes travel through deep snow more difficult.† The lynx on the other hand has a much easier time getting around in the deep snow.
