Check out those huge paws! I think it's a lynx. I think Bobcat's have tufts IN their ears not on them. ????Don't really care,just look at those huge paws! ..... Paws are huge, it is Canada lynx, and according to the coat color.
The Canada Lynx (Lynx canadesis) is the only wild cat found in Alaska. This initially surprised me, since I assumed Mountain Lions made it up there as well, but their range stops just south of the state. This leaves the 20lb Lynx as Alaska's top (and only) feline predator. They are very elusive animals and avoid human contact. Seeing one in the wild is a rare treat!
Eurasian Lynx (Lynx lynx) is a medium-sized cat native to European and Siberian forests, Central Asia and East Asia. It is also known as the European lynx, common lynx, the northern lynx, and the Siberian or Russian lynx.
