1.  Description

Hybridization between the bobcat and the Canada lynx may sometimes occur.

1.1  Bobcat (Lynx rufus)

With a gray to brown coat, whiskered face, and black-tufted ears, the bobcat resembles the other species of the mid-sized Lynx genus. It is smaller on average than the Canada lynx, with which it shares parts of its range, but is about twice as large as the domestic cat. It has distinctive black bars on its forelegs and a black-tipped, stubby tail, from which it derives its name.

L. rufus gigas is the specific subspecies found in 'Souls territories. Its food preference is for mammals about 1.5 to 12.5 lb (0.68 to 5.7 kg). Its main prey varies by region. In the eastern United States, it is the Rabbit. Cougars and canines can kill adult bobcats.

Bobcats typically live to six or eight years of age, with a few reaching beyond ten. The longest they have been known to live is 16 years in the wild and 32 years in captivity.

It prefers woodlands—deciduous, coniferous, or mixed—but unlike the other Lynx species, it does not depend exclusively on the deep forest.

1.2  Canadian Lynx (Lynx canadensis)

With a dense silvery-brown coat, ruffed face and tufted ears, the Canada lynx resembles the other species of the mid-sized Lynx genus. The Canada Lynx has an average weight of 8 to 11 kg (18 to 24 lb).

This feline is rare on mainland Nova Scotia -- prior to humanity's demise, it occurred only in the western and northernmost parts of the Ashes and Ashes area. However, with the 1988 apocalypse, the Canada Lynx has reclaimed some of its former range.

The Canada lynx is found in northern forests; it is absent in relatively treeless regions and cold northern coasts. This lynx is a specialist predator, eating Snowshoe Hare almost exclusively when they are available.

2.  Speech

According to our Speech Guide, this creature speaks High Speech naturally. It is therefore able to communicate with Luperci -- however, keep in mind that speech can be complicated by differences in vocal sounds (e.g., a Whale will sound much different from a Bear, even when both are speaking high speech).

3.  Uses

  • These cats can be made into companions for a canine -- they can be raised from youth.
  • Pelts -- their pelts are often spotted or dotted with dark patches, along with pale patches, and make attractive furs.
