Photo: Animal Picture Canadian Lynx

A beautiful picture of a unique animal known as the Canadian Lynx as he sleeks across the rocks at the Biodome de Montreal in Montreal, Quebec.

The Laurentian Forest at the Biodome de Montreal in Quebec, Canada is as close to a true place of residence that a Canadian Lynx knows and loves if he was born in wilderness. Rock cliffs and ledges make it easier for this animal to secretly maneuver around to ensure that any unwarranted visitors are not trespassing in his habitat.

In the Laurentian Forest, the Canadian Lynx has ample room to roam but they love to pace back and forth on the rocks giving everyone a chance to snap a picture. Here you can see the reddish brown fur that this animal possesses and the thick muscles of its hind legs which the Canadian Lynx uses for power while running and pouncing.

Barely visible is the tail on this animal due to the fact that it is very short but the coloring is black, looking as though it had been dipped in an inkwell. The snowshoe hare is a main source of food for the Canadian Lynx while in the wild and if the hares decrease in numbers, so does the lynx. ... continue below the picture...

... When the hares are plentiful, the Canadian Lynx becomes a more common sight around Canada, Alaska and the northern areas of the United States.

The climate in the Laurentian Forest changes considerably as would the seasons which is what a Canadian Lynx is used to if roaming free. An animal that hunts, travels and feeds by itself unless it is a mother and has its young close but that will only last for the first few months of this animal's life. After that, the young cats are sent off on their own to figure out the ways of life by themselves.

The Biodome de Montreal is a highlight on your visit to Quebec, Canada where you can view an enormous amount of wildlife and capture a picture of many types of animals you may never see during your lifetime. The Biodome is divided into four habitats where different species of wildlife are seen in each, but the Canadian Lynx is a cat that intrigues all tourists.
