About the Canada lynx
The Canada lynx is typically found in old growth boreal forests with dense undercover.
About 75 per cent of the lynx’s diet is snowshoe hare.
One lynx can consume up to 200 hare in one year. When snowshoe hare numbers are low, it will supplement its diet with various rodents and birds, such as voles, squirrels, grouse and sparrows. Moose and caribou, typically calves, may account for some of its diet, but they rarely attack large prey.
Humans are the main predator of the lynx; others include wolves and coyotes.
Average lifespan varies between 10 to 20 years.
On average, a lynx will weigh 17 pounds and typically range between 11 and 35 pounds. It is about two feet tall at the shoulder but length of the animal can vary from two to three feet.
