A Lynx; plural lynx or lynxes is any of the four species
within the Lynx genus of medium-sized wildcats.
The name “lynx” originated in Middle English via Latin from the Greek word “λύγξ”, derived from the Indo-European
root “*leuk-”, meaning “light, brightness”, in reference to
the luminescence of its reflective eyes is considerable confusion about the best way to classify felids at present, and some authorities classify them as part of the genus Felis.
Neither the caracal, sometimes called the Persian lynx or African lynx, nor the jungle cat, called the swamp lynx,
is a member of the Lynx genus.
Reung Dao – Here is the photograph that my friend Ted Larson was able to take before Reung Dao was lost to the wildlife trade. Although I knew and met Reung Dao, I didnt get the opportunity to photograph her. Reung was the sister of Harnfa, she vanished in the early stages, when I first went to work inside the tiger temple in 2007. At that point, I did not know what was going on, but then one day she vanished…. She was gone forever. This is the sister of my beloved Harnfa. The diet of the temple tigers is near vegetarian, and lacking in every vitamin, mineral etc needed for a carnivore. You can see the horrendous deformaties of Reungs arched spine, bowed legs etc. This is the same with all the tigers. I am eternally grateful Ted Larson, you were able to show she was alive, that she existed, thankyou dear friend for having the courage to step forward xoxo
