Lynx canadensis - Canada Lynx
Check out those paws! They’re big and fur-covered, providing a snowshoe-like surface for the lynx to to traipse across the winter snow of Canada. These felids are closely-related to Eurasian Lynx (Lynx lynx) and bobcat (Lynx rufus).
The Newfoundland Lynx (Lynx canadensis subsolanus) subspecies is larger than the mainland species, and has been known to take down caribou calves when snowshoe hares are not around. They’re some of the largest cats that aren’t considered “big cats”.
