One litter each year
The female lynx is of reproductive age at two but only encounters males during the breeding season, from late February to early April. The male signifies that it is ready by hissing to attract the female. The couple forms for a few days before each regains their freedom. Gestation lasts 68 to 72 days before the birth of one to four babies in the crevice of a rock around the end of May or the beginning of June. This constitutes the only litter of the year. The young open their eyes around 16-17 days and venture out of the cave around four months old. They are suckled by their mother before being weaned between two and five months. They will accompany her until they reach nine months old and leave to create their own territory.
