Guest Animal Exhibit

The Tallahassee Museum’s 2019 Spring/Fall Guest Animal Exhibit open Friday, May 24th and features a Seven-year-old Eurasian Lynx on loan from Carson Springs Wildlife Conservation Foundation located in Gainesville, FL.

Born at Carson Springs, our new guest was the first cub born to his Eurasian parents and was raised by his mother until four weeks old when she would no longer nurse him and the Foundation stepped in to help. While he is playful, you may hear a ruffing sound, a cross between a chuff and a growl or see him stick our the tip of his tongue when he is happy or being pet.

Eurasian Lynx is the largest of the four Lynx species with the Bobcat being the smallest with 1-2 inch ear tufts. They generally prefer solitude and have keen eyesight and hearing. While they mostly prefer a diet of small deer, our guest’s favorite is Cornish hen. While not an endangered species, Eurasian Lyzn still faces the threat of habitat loss through deforestation due to development and agriculture.

Twice per year, the Museum Guest Animal Exhibit hosts exotic wildlife from around the world, so our community has an opportunity to explore and educate themselves about the difference and similarities between our current guest and our displays of native animals. Stop by to meet and learn about these amazing animals!
