This Canadian Lynx Is Twice The Size Of A Cat. Now Watch His Reaction When A Trainer Goes To Pet Him.
Canadian lynxes can be found throughout the whole of Canada and in some parts of the United States. While exclusive to North America, they are closely related to the Iberian and Eurasian lynx, both of which are found in Europe. Closer to home, though, the species also counts bobcats as cousins.
Hoffman began working with animals as a zookeeper at Hoosick Falls, New York, in 2002. When the zoo closed six years later, however, she took on a part-time job at a natural history museum. In her free time, too, she taught wildlife education courses. Therefore, little Max found himself in perfectly capable hands.

With their ferocious reputation. razor-sharp teeth and formidable claws. it's sometimes hard to believe that. bigger wild cats are related to the. humble felines we call pets still such. larger cats have a distinctively bigger. bite than the domestic variety so when a. canadian lynx is owner attempts to. stroke him like a pet how do you think. you'll react canadian lynx is can be. found throughout the whole of canada and. in some parts of the united states. well exclusive to north america they're. closely related to the iberian and. eurasian lynx both of which are found in. europe closer to home though the species. also counts bobcats as cousins on. average canadian lynx is our 23 inches. tall and 35 inches long this makes them. about twice the size of your average. house cat but because they tend to live. solitary lives and make their homes away. from human civilization they're known as. the great ghosts of the north. indeed they tend to reside in densely. forested areas where they scout out. their dens and hidden nooks and crannies. and thanks to their large eyes and. distinctive pointy ears canadian lynx's. are perfectly suited to hunting at night. they mainly eat snow hares although they. will catch other forms of small mammals. when hares are scarce the cat's. predators meanwhile are coyotes cougars. and wolves and humans also want the. animals for their fur there's never been. an abundance of lynxes in the united. states but they were traditionally found. in as many as 25 states however their. numbers have dramatically declined due. to loss and fragmentation of their. habitat indeed things got so bad for the. cat that in 2000 the us fish and. wildlife service listed the species as. threatened in the lower 48 states but. while it's gotten harder to catch a. glimpse of the canadian lynx in the wild. many are available to view at zoos and. that's where max comes in. yes the infant lynx was born at a zoo in. may 2011 before being released to. wildlife educator for an adoption. hoffman began working with animals as a. zookeeper at hoosick falls new york in. 2002 when the zoo closed six years later. however she took out a part-time job at. a natural history museum in her free. time - she taught wildlife education. courses there for little max found. himself in perfectly capable hands. in fact max appears to have settled in. well in his new environment. so well it seems that after almost five. years in hoffman's care the lynx has. apparently forgotten that he's a. medium-sized wild cat indeed. extraordinary footage posted by the. animal educator shows just how much. trust exists between the pair the video. which was posted to youtube shows max. purring loudly as he's created by. hoffman with the promise of a stroke the. lynx lifts himself towards his handler. and gently bombs his head on her hand. then as hoffman strokes him the cat's. purrs get louder and louder just like. any domesticated felines after a while. the adorable animal sinks to the ground. as he relaxes to his fullest. he even rests his head on his paws and. closes his eyes thoroughly enjoying the. pleasurable massage just then hoffman. begins scratching max under his chin. which as any cat owner knows cats can't. resist surrendering to his master's. advancements max rolls on his back and. wraps his paws lovingly around hoffman's. arm all the while the felines perth. resonates throughout the room it appears. from the video that max has a lot more. in common with the humble house cat than. may have been previously thought in a. caption that accompanied the. heartwarming video hoffman explained max. links the educational animal ambassador. takes a moment to get some good. scratching before he sits down for his. meal he was born at a zoo in may . he's not completely domesticated but not. wild either hoffman added he educates. the public on the endangered canada lynx. in hope that people will be driven to. conserve our environment and protect our. wildlife he is not declawed during the. winter he weighs 40 pounds and some are. about 34 he has about four inches of fur. in this video which makes him look fat i. mean fluffy. since the video was posted in january. 2016 it's been mute and impressive. 700,000 times it's also attracted. thousands of comments in fact many of. the observations marvel at these. similarities between max and. domesticated felines it's just like a. giant pussycat so cute commented one. youtube user my cat is the exact same. body movement pattern when i pet him a. can't really is a cat in all sizes and. in another it's just a matter of scale. in terms of how dangerous they can be. otherwise their behavior in most species. is pretty much the same as your common. house cat one more set. but while he may look cute max is still. a semi wild animal therefore his. behavior isn't always predictable when. asked if the cat had ever hurt her or. others hoffman responded max has no. contact with anyone except myself so. he's not injured anyone i have gotten a. black eye and a couple good scratches. but no bite marks and none of the. injuries were from aggression just. stupid accidents still max was just a. baby when hoffman acquired him so he. would have been easier to train than. most. in fact videos from his first months in. his new home showed the lynx being. taught how to walk on a lead poor. footage features max at his first. educational visit and although he. appeared nervous at first. he soon eased into his new role but when. max isn't out helping teach youngsters. about bigger cats like him he's at home. with hoffman where he is an indoor and. an outdoor enclosure. according to hoffman the lynx loves. being out in the snow the most it makes. him frisky in wild she said he rolls in. it licks and sniffs it normally i. wouldn't allow the adrenaline rush but. sometimes you just have to give a little. but while he evidently loves being on. the open max will never be able to live. out in the wild like other canadian. lynxes as he was born in a zoo the cat. is probably too domesticated to live. among others of his kind he also has to. take regular medication to fight an. ailment his pancreas doesn't function. properly and therefore he needs enzymes. on his meat daily hoffman explained so. although we probably won't contribute to. the population of canada lynx's with his. own cubs max is still doing his part for. the protection of his species as an. animal ambassador max is helping. children better understand the need to. secure a safe future for his species. education of our next generation is the. only hope for the survival of our. endangered and threatened animals. hoffman said i hope you liked this video. if so please hit the subscribe button. and click on the bell icon to make sure. you never miss a video from our channel. .
