The Canada Lynx (Lynx canadensis) or Canadian Lynx is a North American mammal of the cat family, Felidae. It is a close relative of the Eurasian Lynx (Lynx lynx). Some authorities regard both as conspecific. However, in some characteristics the Canada Lynx is more like the Bobcat (Lynx rufus) than the Eurasian Lynx. With the recognized subspecies, it ranges across Canada and into Alaska as well as some parts of the northern United States.

With a dense silvery-brown coat, ruffed face and tufted ears, the Canada Lynx resembles the other species of the mid-sized Lynx genus. It is larger than the bobcat, with which it shares parts of its range, and over twice the size of the domestic cat.

    This is really a fabulous capture, Yan. But it doesn’t look like the Eurasian Lynx at all, more beautiful, I think.

  • Thank you very much Alex for the great comment. I’m pleased that you like it.
    I don’t know the Eurasian lynx, I cannot compare :)
    Take care!
