Comparing Canada and Eurasian Lynx


The Lynx is one cool cat (pun intended) not only do they have a perfect collective noun (chain) they are also great looking animals. We photographed both the Canada and the Eurasian (Siberian) Lynx during my workshops and I thought I would show both of them together so you can get an idea of the differences.

Comparing the Canada and Eurasian Lynx

  • The Eurasian Lynx is native to northern European and Siberian forests and plains.
  • The Canada Lynx is found in the northern part of the USA as well as in the forests of Canada and Alaska.
  • The Eurasian Lynx length from head to the tail is 32 to 40 in (80 to 130 cm) and can weigh 33 to 64 pounds (15 to 29 kg)
  • The Canada Lynx length from the head to the tail is 32 to 40 in (80 to 100 cm) and weighs 22 to 44 lbs (10 to 20 kg)
  • Both species have large ears adorned with conspicuous black tufts, and the long cheek hair hangs down to form a facial ruff

Wildlife Photography Workshop

We often photograph Lynx during my photography workshops. They are particularly cool in the winter with those huge snowshoe feet! If you are interested in adding Lynx images to your portfolio, go check out my workshops page…Wildlife Workshops!
