Lynx - Amazing CA Wildlife : Articles & Resources

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 hindlegs, giving it a sloping appearance which you can see in the photo below. 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.
