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. Sorry if this didnt help... but i tried my best because yeah... :)

Remove hunting and road kill pressures on the DoÃ±ana lynx population and in areas where the lynx could be recovered in the future. â¢ Protect existing and potential habitat from intensive agriculture and forestry developments, dams, roads and urbanization. â¢ Restore habitat and r…ecover rabbit populations in DoÃ±ana and Andujar, and in areas where the lynx could be recovered in the future. â¢ Expand the wild populations by improving habitat and rabbit availability, and decreasing human impacts, in neighbouring areas. â¢ Reintroduce lynx from a successful captive breeding programme, and translocate animals between wild populations, to increase the number, size, diversity and viability of Iberian Lynx populations in the wild. 15. Important urgent actions required to achieve these goals include: â¢ Avoiding the implementation of a number of existing development proposals for new roads, agriculture and urbanisation in lynx areas. â¢ Decreasing the speed and number of vehicles using particular roads around DoÃ±ana, where many lynx have already been killed. â¢ Reviewing transport, water, agriculture and forestry policies to ensure that they are compatible with long term lynx and rabbit recovery in Spain and Portugal. â¢ Developing new techniques to recover rabbit populations in Spain and Portugal. â¢ Improving legislation, and the adherence to existing legislation, concerning the timing, extent and location of rabbit hunting, particularly in lynx areas. â¢ Improving techniques, and the adherence to legislation, in the control of common rabbit predators, such as foxes, so that lynx are not also killed by these activities. â¢ Increasing monitoring to establish the exact number and causes of decline of the DoÃ±ana population, and the fate of young cubs in Andujar. â¢ Increasing planning to establish where lynx should be reintroduced in the future, and habitat protected, to recreate a viable "metapopulation". â¢ Expanding the fledgling captive breeding programme to include centres in Portugal, and Castilla de la Mancha and Extramadura in Spain, to spread risks, increase the effectiveness of the programme and maintain an Iberian Lynx. â¢ Approving and implementing official lynx recovery plans, and sufficient Natura 2000 areas, to cover all existing lynx areas, and areas for recovery in the future. â¢ Increasing and maintaining current "outreach" efforts towards hunters, land managers and the local population in lynx areas, to alter their activites, and demands for development, making them compatible with long term lynx recovery. â¢ Providing more financial incentives for nature conservation and sustainable development on private land, where most lynx now survive. â¢ Increasing and sustaining financial support for rabbit and lynx conservation and recovery from regional and national governments, and the European Union. â¢ Increasing co-ordination between organisations campaigning to save the Iberian Lynx, to improve lobbying, and counterbalance conflicting policies and interests.

An Iberian is a resident of or descendant of a resident of the Iberian Peninsula of Europe which include a small portion of France, all of Andorra, Gibralter, Portugal and Spain, in other words, an individual from a specific geographic area, not a political boundary.
"General behavioral traits resemble that of a leopard . Lynx are usually solitary, although a small group of lynx can travel and hunt together. Mating takes place in the late winter and they give birth to 2 to 4 kittens once a year. Their desired resting place is in crevices or under ledges. They f…eed on a wide range of animals up to the size of Reindeer , Roe Deer and Chamois , but more often birds, small mammals, fish, sheep and goats. Lynx have been observed (2006) in the Wet Mountains of Colorado. In recent years a few Lynx sightings have started to pop up in the southern Appalachian Mountains of western North Carolina, specifically in the area from Mount Mitchell across to the Shope Creek Forest area (part of Pisgah National Forrest). One Lynx was even caught alive in a cage trap at Graystone Cabins near Barnardsville, NC - the animal was later released alive in a wilderness area within Madison County, NC. Although USFWS officials still deny the presence of Lynx in the southern Appalachians, the most recent sighting was reported in Sept 2007, along the Shope Creek Forest area. USFWS officials say that, if these sightings were in fact Lynx, they were most likely illegally held pets that were either let go or had escaped. Spotting a lynx is a very rare event in and of itself, due to the extremely shy and solitary nature of the animal. It is a secretive cat and usually avoids people; it has been reported to attack humans, but very rarely, almost exclusively in defense. The female lynx has 2 kittens in the winter season. The young stay with the mother for 1 more winter and can then live for themselves."

if one species of animal dies out than the next and the next will die out so save the lynx they are the most endangerd cat species animal posted By Sierra Kohnlein age 9
The Iberian lynx is hunted, because people like killing them for their fur to make jackets, scarfs, and other clothing.
We can help rebuild their population by breeding them in captivity . Some scientists are already doing this, so do your part ! Save the lynx! Another way to help is to make more land preserved and put the lynx in there, then we just add their natural habitat's plants and animals!
Iberian (or Spanish) lynx rely on the Iberian Peninsula's and Spain's rabbit population for the staple of its diet, with other mammals and birds when rabbit is unavailable.
They are native to Spain and Portugal. There are only reported breeding cases in Spain though. Due to their extremely low numbers that are declining every year it's almost safe to say that they won't be living anywhere.
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 living 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. (MORE)

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 1950's, and then the second disease started in the 1980's called viral Hemorrhagic pneumonia, as the death rate of rabbits sta…rted 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. (MORE)

Hope this helps :) lynx . Any of three species of short-tailed forest cat (genus Lynx ) found in Europe, Asia, and northern North America.. The North American lynx ( Lynx canadensis ) is regarded as distinct from the Eurasian and Spanish (Iberian) species. The lynx has long legs, large paws, tufted ears, hairy soles, and a broad, short head. Its coat, which forms a bushy ruff on the neck, is tawny to cream-coloured and mottled with brown and black. Its dense, soft winter fur has been used for trimming garments. Lynx are approximately 30-40 in. (80-100 cm) long, without the 4-8-in. (10-20-cm) tail, and stand about 24 in. (60 cm) high at the shoulder. They weigh 20-45 lb (10-20 kg). Nocturnal and silent except during mating season, lynx live alone or in small groups. They climb and swim well and feed on birds, small mammals, and occasionally deer. Some regional populations of lynx are considered endangered. An animal of course it is a cat with pointy ears. it lives in parts of Europe and nearly all of north America. its enemies are bobcats. in Europe it is by preyed wolves and in America its hunted by cougars, (mountain lion or puma) grizzly bears & wolves. it eats hares & wolverines.

They go to cruel people and sell their coats for money.:( because of its habitat
Structural Adaptations - The Iberian Lynx has long, retractable claws, a trademark featureof the big cats. Due to this, they require less sharpening, areless prone to becoming broken or infected, and are not a danger inmating. - Long ears have a keen sense of hearing and enable the Lynx tohear pred…ators and prey alike from a large distance - The eyes of the Lynx have slit pupils, which helps with lightcontrol and visual information. They provide for more accurateinformation than a human's. Behavioural Adaptations - The lynx is a very independent creature. It does not live inpacks or family groups, but on its own for the majority of itslife. The offspring is separated from its mother when it is 7-9months old, so it can begin defending itself. - The Iberian lynx hides the leftover meat from its prey, so whenit's hungry later, it doesn't have to go hunt something down. Butif they leave the meat too long, it spoils. As for functional adaptations, I am actually searching the internetright now in search of answers for my biology assignment. I'll letyou all know when I find the answer. (MORE)
It depends if they lost a toe or more lost its sad if you ask me
The Iberian Lynx weighs 8.7-14.5 kg. =D
Unlike Eurasian and Canadian lynxes, Iberian lynx are not dense forest cats. They prefer open forests, scrubs, and places similar to either of the previous.

The Iberian Lynx is critically endangered because of road casualties, feral dog attacks, poisoning, habitat loss, and poaching for its beautiful fur. Hope i could help. From Your Friendly Neighborhood SPIDERMAN
If you live in their range, make sure that, if you have one close by, that you see it regularly. Maybe keep track of them around you with a journal. Also, you can publicize your thoughts and help stop hunting. You can help to keep their main food scource, rabbit, population at a nice balanced rate. …If you are a zoo with them, when they breed and the kittens are all grown up, ship them out into their natural habitat and range and release them or the rabbits.

Poachers hunt animals, even in protected areas, so the best way would be to catch a male and female Iberian lynx and keep them in an enclosed area, and when there are lots and lots of them, let them go, or keep a few to get more kittens.
They lap it up with their tongues like other cats. Unlike dogs, however, cats bring the water up under their tongues.
help start a program to save them, have a sponsor or something get help from a wildlife foundation.
The gestation period, or length of pregnancy, for an Iberian lynx is two months. They give birth to two or three cubs. The mother cares for the young alone.
No. Iberia is the area now occupied by Portugal and Spain. It is also called the Iberian peninsula.
Iberian Lynx are as the name says is endemic of Iberia aka Iberian Peninsula. This includes Portugal and Spain.

No. The Iberian Lynx is native to the Iberian Peninsula in Europe (think Portugal, Andorra, Spain). The Eurasian Lynx is native to forested areas in Europe and Siberia. Rain forests are located across parts of the world that are far south from both of these global locations.
The Iberian Lynx is from the Lynx pardinus species. It used to be considered a subspecies of the Lynx lynx species but is now considered separate
The Iberian Lynx is also known as Spanish Lynx and, true to it's names, lives in the Iberian Peninsula and Spain, where it is often considered the most endangered feline in the world.
Litters are usually two to three cubs, though, on rare occasions, there can be be one, four, or even five.
The Iberian lynx is a placental mammal. All members of the feline family are placental.
The lynx gets it's learned behavior from what ever it sees for example if it saw a cat jump on a mouse the lynx would do the same it does not matter what lynx it is all of them are the same.
Lynx will typically mate during late February, early March and with a little over a month of pregnancy, will give birth to their kittens in early April, late May. They also become pregnant twice a year having their cubs in September and October. There is a higher mortality rate for "late litters" …because of the scarcity of food from Winter. (MORE)
