Polar Bears are the largest carnivores in the world and are classified as ‘marine mammals. They can swim for days at a time and are called 'Polar' because they only live in the Arctic at the North Pole. With their habitat at risk from global warming (melting ice) and invasion by oil companies food is also scarce and only 2 in every 100 hunts for food are successful. There are now just 26,000 Polar Bears left. With their blue tongues, black skin and white fur, these magnificent bears grow up to 800 kgs, the weight of 10 men! Magnificence it seems is no guarantee of survival.
The Iberian Lynx
The Iberian Lynx is so called because it lives on the Iberian Peninsula, and is also known as the Spanish Lynx. It's the most endangered feline in the world today with a population of just 400 left on the planet. It was less than 100 at the beginning of he century, so things are looking up! They have a tawny gold coat and a beard which makes them look very cute indeed! Iberian Lynx's grow to about three feet or a metre in height and live on rabbits. They live amongst the trees!
Pink Dolphins or 'Botos', as they are called in Portuguese, are the brightest mammals on the planet, because they are bright pink and bright intellectually, their brain capacity is 40% greater than human beings! Even more extraordinary is their ability to turn their heads 180 degrees - to look up or down as they swim along, imagine being able to swivel your head around to look behind you! They can do this because the vertebrae in their spine are not fused together.
These gorgeous mammals live in freshwater and can only be found in the Amazon River where they face the many threats of living too close to people who hunt them. We lose 1,500 Botos a year with the total population decreasing by half every 10 years.
