Desert Lynx basic information

The Desert Lynx is similar in appearance to a wild bobcat. There are, however, some differences. The wild bobcat has a thinner body than the Desert Lynx and also possesses much longer legs. So while the Desert Lynx is similar in a lot of ways to its wild cousin, the bobcat, they are not miniature bobcats in appearance. The Desert Lynx comes in two varieties, longhair and shorthair. The longhaired version of this stunning creature possesses the ear tufts and neck ruff that are characteristic of its wild counterpart, the bobcat. The shorthairs possess beautiful ear tipping, and exhibit a clarity in their markings that is glorious to behold. The longhaired variety of Desert Lynx should not be confused with longhaired cats of other breeds. This feline is by no means a traditional longhaired cat. The term longhair is applied to describe their slightly longer silky coat. Acceptable patterns for this breed are marble, tawny (ticked agouti), and leopard spotted. The leopard spotted variety comes in several accepted colors, sorrel, ebony, chocolate, fawn, silver, snow, lilac bronze and blue. The snow leopard, characterized by striking blue eyes and gorgeous tan bodies with stunning markings, is one of the most difficult to find. This is a relatively large breed of cat with adult males ranging from 16-18 pounds, and adult females ranging from 10-12 pounds.
