Meet it, it's the Lynx!

Meet it, it's the Lynx!

An orphaned lynx kitten appeared at the door of the inspection house of the Kronotsky Reserve in September of this year. In the entire history of scientific observations in the reserve, for the first time a young lynx comes to human habitation independently.

Trotting. So called the kitten employees of the Kronotsky Reserve. For two and a half months, government inspectors patrolling the vicinity of the Kronotsky lake, and the participants of the complex expedition to study the fish fauna of the water, made hundreds of photos and dozens of videos of a wild cat, which turned into a real beauty. The video camera was set up near the thickets of cedar stanica, where the lynx settled.

"The lynx is very funny, watching it is a pleasure. She behaves like an ordinary home kitten, sports, plays with any objects you like, - told Lyudmila Anisimova, Researcher VNIRO, member of a comprehensive expedition. - When the snow fell, the lynx tumbled in it, because she saw him for the first time in her life. And several times the Lynx climbed onto the roof of our house and moved off with it along with the snow. "

The kitten quickly settled in the neighborhood of the cordon, began to feed on fish, which he found on the shore. Several times, the lynx dragged scientists and charlinks from the scientists caught for research. A young female is already catching the vole alone. According to the state inspectors of the reserve, the number of small rodents in the vicinity of Kronotsky Lake this year is quite high. The lynx rose noticeably and gained weight. During the observation period, the cat completely changed its front teeth from dairy to indigenous ones.

Not long ago, in front of the reserve staff, the lynx tried to hunt a hare, but missed the prey. According to experts, at this age (a kitten now more than six months old, he was born in late May - early June), she can steal the whites and most likely already catches them away from the lake.

Now the beast is developing new territories and is moving far enough away from the cordon. In November, during the patrolling of the territory, the state inspectors of the Kronotsky Reserve discovered traces of at least two lynxes - at 6 kilometers from the Istok cordon and not far from the cordon of the airfield, which is located about 30 kilometers from the source of the Kronotskaya River.
