      The netted exhibit for northern lynx in Duisburg Zoo, Germany. This exhibit is well furnished but too small such a large cat.

      I love lynx, so I too am disappointed by this one.
      It's got the height, but isn't wide enough at all, hopefully something will be done in the near future.....

      It seems to go pretty far back though. Would you say it's an adequate size or that it's too small, Toddy?
    • chizlit
      Ash, you are right it does have space at the back too, and it's high, but for me still too small for lynx, having said that it's certainly not the worst I've seen, I'd give it 5 out of 10.

      I am with chizlit on this one. It looks bigger than it really is. It is nicely furnished but the three-dimensional space is not well utilised so the height is wasted. I would also give either 4 or 5 out of 10. But like chizlit it is still not the worst it could be. They should just replace the lynx with European wild cats.

      Ok, thanks Toddy :)

      Toddy, putting wildcats in here would make perfect sense.
