Description

The Canada lynx (Lynx canadensis) is a carnivorous mammal in the family Felidae. Its fur is tawny or gray with a beard-like ruff, and it can bear black or dark-brown markings. It is a solitary hunter that feeds mainly on snowshoe hares. Its large paws allow it to walk easily on the snow.

Native to North America, it is still debated whether or not the Canada lynx is a distinct species from the Eurasian lynx.

The caption reads in the original French: Lynx du Canada.
