- Populations of Eurasian lynx have been reduced or become extinct in the wild in western Europe, where it is now being reintroduced.
- Lynx have excellent eyesight: they can spot a mouse at 250 feet!
- As they walk on the cold ground, its paws enlarge and become more padded, acting as snowshoes that support the cat's weight in the snow. Its paws may become larger than a human hand or foot.
