The Lynx Mama and 7 kittens revisited the photographer's house in Alaska. Getting to see them once is pretty cool, but twice is just plain old awesome.

Thanks for posting!

Lynx have some serious sized all terrain paws for getting around deep snow and hunting their favorite prey (snowshoe hare). On Youtube videos I view of Lynx, several comments left by folks refer to them as "murder mittens"...

Some car manufacturer ought to come out with an ultra-serious AWD vehicle and name it the "Lynx". You could get it in the hatchback, sports coupe, sport suspension, heated mirrors and seats. Added bonus if they come up with a foul smelling yellow liquid one could press a button and "mark" the car of a driver that races ahead and cuts in at the top of a long line of cars waiting to exit...

Alas, they would lose market share by losing customers who don't like cats, so don't expect the model too soon...

Massive cool mon! I like the "murder mittens" description of the paws. Very appropriate. We have bobcats here and I've been lucky enough to see one nab a chukar. On the fly even. The birds broke cover and I had designs on them myself but before I could even get my gun to my shoulder this cat comes flying out of the rocks like a Patriot missile and BAM.


Snags a bird and takes off like its head was on fire and its butt was catching. Lol, kitty had been working hard to get chow, and wasn't going to let me ruin it. It was THE most amazing leap I've ever seen. We see this sort of thing from our barn cats all the time catching birds. But a cat that's better than 30+ pounds flying through the air like that.... Just way to neato.


I'll tell ya, city folks don't know what their missing. I just love living next to the wild things. We get to see things some folks will only see on TV. And live is a way better experience.

Sorry, but the name "Lynx" was appropriated by Mercury back in the 80's. Unfortunately, the model was only a rebadged version of the Ford Escort.

I remember the Mercury Lynx after calling up images of it on Google, yes, just a re-branded version of the Escort. Not a super serious AWD by any stretch. Should not stop present day car builder from considering using the name again, I doubt enough people would remember and/or care of the previous usage for it to have any significant impact. Folks who dislike cats would still be the leading drawback to consider IMO.

I also remember Mercury had a compact/mid-size car called the "Bobcat" back in the late 70's...
