Possessing a striking coat color and sharp ears, the black-eared lynx deserves to be honored as one of the most beautiful cat breeds on the planet.
Appearing in paintings and sculptures, the lynx or the black-eared lynx was considered a sacred animal by the ancient Egyptians. Unlike the gentle white-haired Persian cat, the black-eared lynx fascinates people with its cold, windy appearance.
The black-eared lynx is a breed of cat native to Africa, the Middle East, and India.
Because of their concentration on dry savannas and semi-deserts, they are also known as the desert lynx or the African lynx.
The black-eared lynx likes to settle in savannahs and shrublands to facilitate hunting.
An adult lynx can weigh nearly 18kg and be up to 1m long.
In the wild, the black-eared lynx has a lifespan of about 12 years, but if cared for in captivity, they can live more than 17 years.
It can be seen that there are few animals that possess a beautiful coat color like the black-eared lynx.
The most attractive feature of this cat breed is its pointed ears with jet-black patches. It is this feature that adds pride and nobility to them. For that reason, they were sculpted by the ancient Egyptians and placed outside the royal tombs
They believed that the black-eared lynx could protect the pharaohs’ eternal sleep from the disturbances of dark forces.
