A similar demographic cycle between the lynx and its main prey.
The Canada lynx has an intimate relationship with the American hare. Their populations fluctuate between 8 and 10 years, with periods of abundance and periods of scarcity.
A particular characteristic of the Canada lynx is the size of its paws. Besides being wide, they are webbed and the cushions are wide and hairy, offering support on the snow and allowing it to be silent while hunting.
It makes leaps of 6.5 meters in length (the equivalent of 3-4 leaps of a hare).
