Nature is full of surprises and its beautiful wonders often have the power to leave us mesmerised. There are so many species of birds and animals that it becomes rather difficult to remember the names of them all. However, sometimes you may come across certain species that may look absolutely different from anything you could ever imagine, and it’s probably one of the most memorable experiences for anyone. Something similar happened with a Twitter user. Sherine Fatima recently shared a video of a possible Tibetan Lynx spotting in Ladakh that has garnered quite a bit of speculation.

A Mix Of Cat & Lion Spotted?

On Tuesday, February 28, 2023, Sherine Fatima, but the username @fatima_sherine, shared a video of an animal that has left many people speculating about the specie. She shared a video of a cat-like wild animal wherein she was seen to be curious about it. In the video, one can see that the animal is surrounded by barking dogs, who seem to be unhappy to have an intruder in their territory. However, the petite animal is confidently seen walking in their midst, with its head held high.

The user also tagged the Wildlife Trust of India and Wildlife Crime Control Bureau, asking them about the specie of the animal. She is, however, correct in her observation that the animal does look like an interesting mix between a lion and a cat. Several users replied to her video, suggesting that this animal looks like Eurasian Lynx or Tibetan/Himalayan Lynx. One of the users also commented how it’s a rare sighting. While another commenter informed on the platform that it’s called ‘EEE’ in Ladakhi language.

For those who aren’t aware, Eurasian Lynx is generally found in the temperate and boreal forests of Northern, Central, and Eastern Europe. The gorgeous wildcat can also be found in Central Asia and Siberia, the Tibetan Plateau, and the Himalayas. Generally found prowling at an elevation of 5,500 metres, and though it has bounced back from the brink of extinction, it’s still endangered in some parts. As it happens, Eurasian Lynx is one of Europe’s largest predators!
