The Eurasian lynx (Lynx lynx) distribution is ranging from Western Europe down to the Tibetean plateau (Breitenmoser et al., 2008). The lynx is declared as least concern by the IUCN Red List (www.iucnredlist.org) and is often used as model species for the critically endangered Iberian lynx (Lynx pardinus). We were studying the Eurasian lynx ovarian cycle on eight captive individuals, in the period of one year. Ultrasound examinations (Göritz et al., 2009), hormone analysis in serum (Dehnhard et al., 2008; Jewgenow et al., 2009) and vaginal smears were conducted.
