The Canada lynx can be easily recognized thanks to its distinctive long ear tufts and black-tipped tail. Since they generally live in cold climates, the animals have thick fur and large paws. And these features come in handy when hunting in the snow.

The animals’ main prey are snowshoe hares. However, they will feast on other small mammals if hare numbers are low. They tend to hunt at night, when they can use their heightened hearing and sight to pounce on unsuspecting prey.
