In the Russian fur industry we distinguish between such species as the Amur lynx, the jungle cat, the forest lynx and caracal.
The jungle cat’s fur is thick and grey with reddish tints. The forest lynx is brown and silver with dark spots, its fur is softer. The Amur lynx has a reddish coat; its fur is long and dense. The caracal has shorter fur; its coat grey is with yellow tints.
Just like among other fur animals, lynx pelt is more valuable in the winter than in the summer because winter fur is softer, longer and fluffier.
