The mythical lynx was half dog and half panther. It was believed to have extraordinary, penetrating vision. Because of its excellent vision, the ancient Greeks believed it could detect falsehood and even see through walls. The lynx, as we know it today, is a solitary animal with excellent hearing but only reasonable sight. In medieval times, the lynx was associated with the devil. Native Americans believed the lynx collected secrets and hidden knowledge. If you dream of a lynx, it's a sign that you should utilize your inner vision to see a situation for what it really is, and then act upon it.
