This North American mammal can be found in the moist boreal forests of Alaska and Canada. They are medium-sized cats which are considered to be one of the rarest cats in the world.
Even though they might look like the bobcat, the Canadian Lynx has its distinct features. One of the most easily noticeable ones being the long ear tufts and their unusually large paws. Since they live in areas covered with snow, their huge paws function like snowshoes.
The Canadian Lynx is a solitary animal which is slightly more active during the night than during the day. They spend a lot of their time searching for their favorite food which happens to be the snowshoe hare.
These beautiful kitties are finally taken off the endangered species list and are doing pretty well, despite poachers hunting them down for their fur.
