Lynx; Eurasian lynx          Harilik ilves            Lynx lynx


Today the camera setup in Elistvere was dismounted.

Our thanks to the doers, the viewers and the LK forum. Even though the camera images were sent from the lynx enclosure at the animal park we still got some insight in the life of lynxes during the year.

Elistvere female lynx has three kittens!

Elistvere lynx. There are still no photos of the three lynx kittens, two months old, in the Elistvere Animal Park. But since the kittens by now are big enough to move around more in the fold we will surely soon be able to show some delightful images.

Lynx         Ilves ehk harilik ilves        Lynx lynx


Although in an enclosure  the lynxes rather prefer  to keep themselves to themselves. The only time when they look for being close to each other  is the heat period but we will have time to write about that later..

On the stormy Saturday night  the hoarse calls of the lynxes were heard and an active movement seen. On Sunday all three inhabitants in the enclosure were in camera view at the same time.

The camera of the Animal of the Year is located in the Elistvere animal park where at present 4 spotted cats live: the lynx lady Gella, lynx men Lars and Koopailves and one young new-comer from East Virumaa. In camera view we will hopefully see Gella with light fur, also Lars who has a darker head and dark spots, and maybe also the shy Kooopailves who keeps himself to himself. The newcomer – who is evidently a young female and who is said to have been left in an empty dog enclosure in East Virumaa – was brought to live at Elistvere this year and is as yet accommodating herself to the other lynxes – we will not meet her to start with. The young newcomer will live on her own in her enclosure for some more time.
