Eurasian Lynx

Lynx lynx

Description:

First time encountrering a lynx, after following his tracks for a while in difficult areas. It's what I think to be a young lynx. It was really impressive as unexpected Hope you will like the pictures and video (that I'm not able to add to the section) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DNcxUq2V....

Habitat:

Mountains / Forests

Notes:

You can enjoy more pictures and info about Wildlife in Switzerland on my article about Wildlife in Switzerland [en] http://www.ansermoz-photography.com/what... [fr] http://www.ansermoz-photography.com/fr/q... I mislocated the place in order to avoid people to disturb him and all the surrounding animals. There is not lots of people going where I go, and as it's a small area, I prefer to keep it safe. Hope you understand.

What an exceptional encounter Frederic! Thanks for posting it on Project Noah! Regarding location, it's more than fine, it is actually our policy not to reveal exact locations is such cases.
We are aware of the video issue, which will be fixed as soon as the site can be upgraded.
