Tufted Lynx

Amongst the full canopied forests
hidden from view fir their protection
these beautiful big cats live our their lives
away from human intervention

Their tracks seen across the snowy range
for cold is no bother to this cat
as their large paws act like snowshoes
it`s so suited to it`s habitat

With long black tufts as tips on it`s ears
helping to enhance their good hearing
along with it`s large bright amber eyes
even with these, they`re disappearing

From short bobbed tail, with it`s black tip
to a handsome flared facial ruff
longer hind legs, making it stoop
their life can really be so tough

Such striking animal to be watched
like our domestic cats, they creep
and silently pounce on it`s prey
followed by the fatal biting sweep

So as we save this beautiful Lynx
by preserving it`s habitat
we`ll also save ancient forests
a winning situation,  how`s that!!
