sneaky lynx

Lynx are wild cats that live in woods and forests. They have to be sneaky to find food. These cats are not as fast as the deer and other animals they hunt. To catch them, a lynx hides and then surprises its prey. Some lynx have spots. Some lynx have stripes. Some have both. A lynx blends in with the winter snow or the dark woods. When a deer comes close, the lynx pounces on the surprised animal. A lynx hunts animals bigger than it is. Except for mothers with cubs, lynx live and hunt alone. The tufts on a lynx’s ears help it hear. Now it is dinnertime for the lynx and her cub.

A baby walrus starts to grow tusks when it is about four months old. A walrus has whiskers and tusks on its head. It uses both things to survive. A walrus has 400 to 700 whiskers on its face. Whiskers help a walrus feel things, like you use your fingertips. It wiggles its whiskers through the sand to search for food. Walruses use their tusks to climb out of the water. They hook their tusks onto the ice and pull their bodies up. Walruses live where it is so cold that ice covers the ocean. Tusks can be as long as a three-year-old child. Tusks also protect walruses from hungry polar bears. NOW SHOWING!
