. The American natural history; a foundation of useful knowledge of the higher animals of North America. Natural history. THE BAY LYNX OR BOB CAT 51 closely related to the type to be set forth separately here. This species is marked by the absence of the long ear-pencil of the Canada lynx (although sometimes a small pencil is present), by the small feet and the warm brown tone in the color of the fur. Western specimens are sometimes so strongly marked with round black spots that we feel impelled to recognize the'' Spotted Lynx'' as a distinct species; but when we find others from the Atlantic coast also spotted, besides others of the standard reddish gray, we are compelled to refer all of them to the species of the Bay Lynx. In the Atlantic states the standard color for this animal is a mixture of rusty red, gray, and blackish brown, with the red so prevalent as to have given a name to the crea- ture. In the West, the spotted coat is more common, and occasionally the spots are strongly marked all over the animal. The face of the Bay Lynx is really very beautiful and, when not too fat from overfeeding in captivity, the body is lithe and graceful. When kept in large cages in the open air and sunlight, sheltered from storms, and not overfed, this animal is easily kept in fine condition. In artificially heated buildings they do not thrive.. E.
