Canada Lynx: The Ghost from the North

The Canada lynx ranges across Canada and Alaska, with smaller populations extending into Montana, Maine, and several other states. They are easily recognizable cats with their black ear tufts, flared facial ruff, and a very short tail. Its paws are unusually large and in very deep snow act like snowshoes.

They are good swimmers, excellent at climbing trees, and can leap long distances, leaving conservationists looking far and wide for tracks in the snow.

Canadian lynxes have superb eyesight and can spot a mouse 250 feet away. The black tufts on the top of their ears enhance their already excellent hearing.
