Stunning images showcase the beauty of Canada's iconic animal

The Canada lynx has very thick, light brown or gray fur with light black spots. It has large ears with long black tufts at the ends. Its tail is short with a black tip at the end.

It has a pointed, beard-like ruff and long legs with big paws. Its paws work like snowshoes and distribute the lynx's weight, helping it move in the snow.

The lynx's range extends over most of Canada and Alaska and south into parts of Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana.

Lynx live deep in coniferous forests near rocky areas, bogs and swamps.

About 75% of the lynx's diet is made up of the snowshoe hare. It also eats birds, meadow voles, carrion and sometimes larger animals like deer and caribou.


Lynx often store leftover kill by covering it with snow. Adult lynx are solitary hunters, although a mother and her young will often hunt together. It usually hunts at night and stalks its prey before pouncing on it. The lynx can climb trees and it often waits on a branch for passing prey

    Built in snow shoes to race across the snow. God thought of everything when he created all creatures. Man as the custodian of animals has failed miserably.
