Lynx belong to the small cats and are therefore mammals. There are four different species, all living in North America, Europe and Asia. When we talk about lynx, we usually mean the European lynx.

Lynx are larger and heavier than our domestic cats. They are more like a medium to large dog. They have sharp claws that they can retract and extend to take down their prey. They live for 10 to 20 years.
