The Iberian Lynx. General Information.
The Iberian Lynx is Critically Endangered and is one of the most endangered cats in the world. These Fierce cats are found in all around Europe. They are carnivals and they eat small mammals such as mice, squirrels, and birds. In 1980, their were lots of Iberian Lynxes found in the south of Spain. Then, in 2003, they were decreased a lot, I wonder how many Iberian Lynxes could exist by now?

The male is larger than the female, with the average weight of males 12.9 kilograms (28 lb) and a maximum of 26.8 kilograms (59 lb), compared to an average of 9.4 kilograms (21 lb) for females. They have a very strong roar as well!
The Iberian Lynx Have been endangered for decades. They have been endangered because of their beautiful fur! They have been doing this because their fur are so isolated because of the cold. Also, they have been struggling because they live in the mountains of Spain, far from the cold northern forests where most Iberian lynx live.
