This footage was captured this winter as Swan Valley Connections, the Blackfoot Challenge, and the Forest Service work together to monitor rare carnivores for the Southwestern Crown Collaborative.
The Canada lynx (Lynx canadensis) or Canadian lynx is a North American mammal of the cat family, Felidae. With the recognised subspecies, it ranges across Canada and into Alaska as well as some parts of the northern United States.
Take, for example, the rare and beautiful lynx. It’s a big cat, so you might think you could guess what it sounds like. You know about a house cat’s meow and a lion’s roar. How different could a lynx really sound after all?
Evidently, it’s much different. As this trail cam video will show, the lynx’s noise is one they didn’t teach you growing up!
You’ll be surprised that this is how they sound!
That was such a strange noise! It’s like a half-growl, half-roar. It makes you wonder what that lynx was trying to say. (We’re guessing “Stop filming me!”)
