The Canadian lynx (Lynx canadensis) is a medium-sized North American lynx. It was first described by Robert Kerr in 1792. The Canadian lynx occurs predominantly in dense boreal forests, and its range strongly coincides with that of the Snowshoe hare. It is regularly trapped for the international fur trade in most of Alaska and Canada but is protected in the southern half of its range due to threats such as habitat loss.
The Canadian lynx is a cat of medium size with characteristic long ear tufts, a flared facial ruff, and a short, bobbed tail that has a completely black tip. Its paws are unusually large and in very deep snow act like snowshoes. Lynxes have thick fur and long legs, the hind legs being longer than the front legs, giving them a stooped appearance. Males are slightly bigger than females and there is not much geographic variation in size.
Native to North America, the Canadian lynx inhabits a range from the Arctic treeline, southwards through a good part of Alaska and Canada, as well as the north of the adjoining United States. It occurs predominantly in the dense boreal forest, and its range strongly coincides with that of the Snowshoe hare. In the United States, the Canadian lynx occurs in the Blue Mountains, the Cascade Range and the southern Rocky Mountains, the Great Lakes region, and New England. The animal generally avoids open areas despite good prey availability and faces difficulty surviving in heavily logged areas and on agricultural land.
- The word “lynx” comes from the Greek “to shine,” and may refer to the animal’s eyes’ reflective ability.
- Canadian lynxes have superb eyesight and can spot a mouse 250 feet away. The black tufts on the top of their ears enhance their already excellent hearing.
- A 30-pound lynx has larger feet than a mountain lion of 200 pounds. These big feet are like snowshoes, enabling them to hunt effectively in deep snow.
- This cat is not a fast runner and does not chase its prey but ambushes it instead.
- The Canadian lynx is a very vocal animal, producing cat-like meows, hisses, and purrs.
- Many scientists think that thousands of years ago the Canadian lynx migrated to North America from Asia, probably crossing the land bridge between the two continents at that time.
