What is an Iberian lynx?
An Iberian Lynx is in the cat family. It is larger than a bobcat but smaller than a Siberian Lynx. The Iberian Lynx is the most Endangered feline in the world, there are only 150 remaining in the wild. They have a spotted coat and fur that goes down the side of their face, they are hunted for their thick fur and for their prized meat. They started dying out in the 1920's because of a deseise then they were getting hunted by man, they also died because they had got caught in a snare set for rabbits or accidentally shot because it was mistaken for another animal.

The Iberian lynx became endangered for two main reasons. The firstof these was that it depends on rabbits to live and does not adjustwell to eating other foods. The rabbits li…ving in the lynx'shabitat were nearly wiped out by a succession of two diseases,making it very hard for the lynx to find food. Its habitat has alsobeen seriously impacted by human development, reducing theterritory the lynx has available to it and further impacting itsability to survive.
The first half on how the Iberian Lynx became critically endangered. Started by two diseases. First disease is Myxomatosis is a disease found in rabbits which started in the 1…950's, and then the second disease started in the 1980's called viral Hemorrhagic pneumonia, as the death rate of rabbits started falling the Iberian Lynx struggled as there were very little population of rabbits around, some of the Iberian lynx died of hunger That's how the first half of howthe Iberian lynx became threatened, the second half is when Iberian Lynx lost their Habitat, Illegal hunting sport hunting, accidental killing by snares set for rabbits, and poison baits set for foxes and other predators, even road kill have been a factor in making the Iberian Lynx critically Endangered and Threatened. And if continued will cause the iberian lynx to tall extinction and will be the loss of the first feline wild cat.
\nTheir prey is the European Rabbit, (Oryctolagus cuniculus)
5 to 6 years

The Iberian lynx isfound in Mediterranean woodland and marquis habitat (a scrub -like habitat of open forests and thickets ), where there is a mixture of dense scrub and op…en pasture.. Common Name: Iberian Lynx, Spanish Lynx Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Chordata (Vertebrata) Class: Mammalia Order: Carnivora Family: Felidae Genus: Felinae (Lynx) Species: pardina Misc.: The debate continues whether or not the IberianLynx is in fact a separate species from the Canadian and SiberianLynxes, or merely a subspecies. Experts are evenly divided on thissubject, but for now, it remains a separate species based on itsmarked adaptive differences for prey capture. The name Lynx comesfrom the Greek word "to shine," and may be in reference to thereflective ability of the cat's eyes. .
