The Canadian Llynx is a medium-sized cat characterized by its long ear tufts, flared facial ruff, and short, bobbed tail with a completely black tip.

They are equipped with very thick fur and exceptionally large paws to aid and protect them from their snowy habitat.

  • The Canadian Llynx are carnivores, known to prey on mice, birds, red squirrels, voles, ptarmigan, and grouse but the main portion of its diet comes from the snowshoe hare.

  • They will often cover their prey with a layer of snow to be eaten at a later time.

  • The female lynx will give birth to between 1 and 6 kittens but the average is a litter of 2 to 4 kittens.

  • The population of the Canadian Llynx has declined to the point that it was put on the list of threatened animals in the United States. Human factors such as urbanization are the main reason for their decline.

  • Mating season lasts only for a month but occurs in the spring somewhere between March and May, depending on the climate.

  • The Canadian Llynx is an extremely elusive animal. It rarely seen by humans and has earned the nickname "shadow of the forest".
