That was both intense and also... amusing? Whoever wrote the captions deserves a handshake.

I just spent a minute and a half watching some overgrown cats yell at each other in a dialect that sounds half-bird squawk, half-tantruming child. Thank you for this glorious experience.

The road is now calling, and I must away.
Over hill and under tree, through lands where never light has shone.
By silver streams that run down to the sea.

Saw this last night but without captions. Even better with them. But you know, if we put this in the game, somebody would criticize the lame sound effects.

They almost sounds like they're shouting "Bruuuuuuuhhhhh!"

That is quite an interesting sound, haha. Definitely not what I was expecting from a lynx. It almost sounds like a growl from a cat, but many times deeper.

You could always hide one of these guys in another building or area separate from Floppy and have the sound activate at a certain time when players are in the vicinity. :P Not sure what you'd call the lynx though.

I have heard that lynx only "battle" each other with their vocalizations, as opposed to bobcats or cougars which sometimes get into physical fights. Not sure if that is true or not. Most of what I've read about Canadian Lynx states that they are less aggressive and more reclusive than bobcats.
