Lynx are solitary and seem to be territorial. Although the home ranges of females may overlap, males occupy distinct areas. Male home ranges may include the range of one or more females and their young.
Lynx are primarily visual predators but also have well-developed hearing. They hunt mainly at night. Prey are normally stalked and then pounced upon, although some lynx will wait in ambush for hours.
