Rare European lynx spotted in Romania

Posted: Updated:

Romania's Forestry Agency released video showing the nocturnal and rarely seen European lynx.

The images were recorded with wildlife surveillance cameras in a Romanian Forest range.

The forestry agency believes there are four lynxes in this particular mountain range.

Usually, they are solitary and nocturnal creatures, but sometimes during winter months a male and female will hunt together.

There are four species of lynx with the European lynx the largest of the four.

The bobcat, found in the US, is the smallest of the four.

Romania has one of the largest populations of lynx in Europe with over 2,600 animals.
