Ranua Zoo, Lynx - Plaster Magnetic
Lynxes habit many different types of environments, excluding mountain areas and flat coasts of Ostrobothnia. Their prey animals, hares and white-tailed deer, thrive primarily in broad-leaved and mixed forests, on the edges of fields and in shrubs. Consequently, these areas are also preferred by the lynx that is active at dawn and at dusk.
Lynxes are solitary; only the mother and its young of the year live together. These days especially young lynxes can also be seen close to human habitation, but a well concealed lynx with its spotted fur is a rare sight indeed.
