The appearance of a Canadian Lynx resembles a Eurasian Lynx: the fur is yellow or grey and may bear blackish markings. Lynxes hunt for hares, rodents and birds. In some areas the Snowshoe Hare is virtually the only prey of the Canadian Lynx.
The Newfoundland Lynx (Lynx canadensis subsolanus) is a subspecies of the Canadian Lynx. It is larger than the mainland lynxes.
