A swamp lynx came to live in the Minsk Zoo. It arrived in Minsk from Baku. It differs from its domestic relatives by its bigger size and willful character. The swamp lynxes got their name because of their habitat – it is mainly high thickets. Also, the predators love a warm climate, but they feel comfortable in winter. In the Minsk Zoo, this is not the first inhabitant of the species: there already lives a swamp lynx Brutus. The animals have already got along with each other.
