Two Beautiful Lynxes Scream At Each Other On The Side Of The Road
I can usually identify the source of a sound when I hear it.
It’s obvious to recognize the basic sounds like crickets while on a walk down the street at night, or squirrels scurrying through the bushes; even something less distinct like the sound of a vacuum clogged with something that shouldn’t have gone up the pipe is recognizable.
But, if I heard the sound in the video below, I don’t think I would be able to make out what was happening, or where it was coming from.
In fact, these sounds can be perceived to sound like a small revving motor.
Or a strange white noise on a TV. Never in a million years would I have guessed that it would be this.
Nicole Lewis was driving by Avery Lake (it borders Ontario, Canada, and Michigan, US) when she crossed two lynxes; by the looks, and the sounds of it, the animals were having a territorial dispute.
Although we can’t be sure that they were fighting over land and space, it seems in their nature to create an issue and argue over the matter.
The video that Nicole got of the lynxes fighting almost went immediately viral because of the sound that they made.
People who have seen the clip, and know more about their habits, say that it is normal for them to make these sounds.
A lot of others are comparing their argument to that of their children and how they fight with one another; others are saying that the two sound like squabbling spouses.
It’s really hard to discern what on earth these two lynxes are going on about! Are they, in fact, arguing? Are they about to mate? Are they hashing out territorial boundaries? Maybe they’re just hungry and this is how they make plans to hunt? We will never know what these two gorgeous big cats are discussing, but it sure is entertaining. What are the chances of actually ever seeing this again?
Although lynxes are rare in Michigan, it can very well be that the two from this video originate from the Dinorwic Region in Ontario, that’s close to where Nicole recorded the footage.
The sounds are a little off-putting but is very interesting to hear. It’s like a scene from the Discovery channel!
