Lynx Researcher Jenny Mattisson says that shes never seen a lynx swim before, but confirms that they are not as fuzzy as a cat.

 Canada lynxes are secretive and mostly nocturnal animals, although they may be active at any time of day. They shelter in areas of particularly dense forest.

In regions where their range overlaps with that of other predators, such as bobcats and coyotes, they tend to hunt in areas with deeper snow cover, or at higher altitudes.

These cats tend to stay within 100 yards (91 m) of the treeline, but do not shy away from swimming. One account records a lynx swimming two miles across the Yukon River.

When food becomes scarce, the lynx territory will increase; most of the population will roam far, with a select few staying behind in their original territory
