The lynx, f, is a feline NetHack monster, slightly stronger than a jaguar but slightly weaker than a panther. They usually are faster than the player character, and can catch low level adventurers unprepared.
A family of short tailed, medium-sized felines spread all over the northern hemisphere.
To dream of seeing a lynx, enemies are undermining your
business and disrupting your home affairs. For a woman,
this dream indicates that she has a wary woman rivaling her
in the affections of her lover. If she kills the lynx, she
will overcome her rival.
