These magnificent creatures are also highly elusive, so spotting them in the wild is the Canadian Lynx – one of the most adorable big cats on Earth!
“Regardless how hard I’ve tried, I haven’t been fortunate enough to encounter a lynx in the wild yet,” wildlife photographer Tracy Munson told Bored Panda. Nevertheless, Munson managed to grab some great snaps of a Canadian Lynx.
“She [the lynx she caught on camera] was a permanent resident of a Wildlife Rehab Centre in Ontario,” the photographer said. “Photographing her was pretty much like photographing a really large and angry housecat.”
“In the wild, lynx are quite shy and secretive, so you would be very lucky to see one,” wildlife photographer Tracy Munson said.
Because they are so secretive and very elusive(they usually go for their pray during the night), the Canadian Lynx is also known as the “the grey ghost of the North.”
Although, the species was listed as endangered for many years, the conservation programs helped them to re-thrive lately, so nowadays these beautiful wild cats are no longer listed as an endangered species.
