Filmed by BBC Earth, this video gives you a close up look at a leaping lynx.
Check out this video where the host attempts to make this lynx leap two meters in the air by baiting it with a tasty mean.
The leaping lynx in this video isn’t just jumping for fun, there’s a piece of meat above its head that’s baiting the cat.
According to the host, lynx are great climbers because of their sharp retractable claws, which act as crampons when climbing trees. These lynx are known to hunt prey the size of deer.
If only one cat can be called the leaping lynx, it has to be this one. After watching this video you have to agree with the host when he says the leaping lynx’s attack on the meat was “incredibly elegant, swift and merciless.”
Would you have been scared getting surrounded by these lynx? This host had three hungry cats around him and it’s clear he’s glad he made it out alive.
