Canada Lynx – Lynx Canadensis

Status: Least Concern

Habitat: Canada lynx live in much of Canada, in Alaska, and in other small portions of the northern United States. They can be found in forests, grassland and shrubland.

Adaptations: The animals’ large broad feet serve as built-in snowshoes, and they can be recognized by their black ear tufts and black-tipped tail. They are good climbers.

Diet: In the wild, they mainly eat snowshoe hare. If they can’t find that, they will eat other animals.

Fun fact: On a regular day, a Canada lynx will travel one to five miles.
