Most lynx prefer rabbits, but will also eat rodents, birds, and reptiles. Some have even been known to hunt small deer.
Lynx will typically have 1 to 5 cubs at a time after a gestation period of 2.5 months. At birth the cubs are blind. Lynx kits will stay with their mother until the following mating season and may remain with their siblings for another year or two.
Relationship with Humans
Farmers and hunters have killed many of the subspecies of lynxes to near extinction, paricularly in Europe.
