Canadian Lynx

Lynx canadensis

The Canadian Lynx stands about 30-40 cms tall, and ranges in length from about 90-110 cms. They weigh anywhere between 10-20 kgs. The lynx has characteristics that stand out, such as its amazing triangular shaped ears with black tufts at the end. The lynx usually has thick light brown or grayish colored fur which helps to keep it warm during cold winters. They have large paws which assist them in moving fast through the snow.

What a beauty! Thank you for sharing & congratulations on earning spotting of the day!

The lynx is a skilled hunter with great hearing (the tufts on its ears act as a hearing aid) and eyesight so keen that it can spot a mouse 250 feet away.
