Did you know that despite its long legs, the Canada lynx cannot run fast? It prefers to lie in wait for prey, then pounce.
The Canada Lynx, or Canadian Lynx ranges across Canada, into Alaska, and dips down to Colorado in the Rocky Mountains. It is medium sized, similar to the bobcat, with it’s front legs shorter than it’s hind legs, giving it a sloping appearance.
The lynx can be distinguished from the bobcat by the black tip on it’s stubby tail. The Canada lynx relies heavily on the snowshoe hare for food. It’s population is secure though numbers fluctuate in relation to the population of the snowshoe hare.
