These Photos Will Make You Fall In Love With Canada Lynx

The Canada lynx is a lynx species native to North America. It ranges across Canada and Alaska and south into parts of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana. They live deep in coniferous forests near rocky areas, bogs, and swamps.

With a dense silvery-brown coat, ruffed face, and tufted ears, the Canada lynx looks similar to bobcats, but there are some distinguishing features: The Canada lynx is slightly larger than the bobcat; it has large ears with long black tufts at the ends. Its tail is short, with a black tip at the end.

The Canada lynx tends to hunt at night like its primary prey, the snowshoe hare. It also eats birds, meadow voles, carrion, and sometimes larger animals like deer and caribou. It can climb trees, and it often waits on a branch for passing prey.
