Endangered species
   in Macedonia
Eurasian Lynx

•   The Eurasian lynx is a medium-sized cat native
    to European and Siberian forests,South Asia and East Asia. It is also known
    as the European lynx, common lynx, the northern lynx, and the Siberian or
    Russian lynx. While its conservation status has been classified as “Least
    Concern", populations of Eurasian lynx have been reduced
    or extirpated from western Europe, where it is now being reintroduced.

                   Physical characteristics
•   The Eurasian lynx is the largest lynx species, ranging in length from 80 to
    130 cm (31 to 51 in) and standing about 70 cm (28 in) at the shoulder. The
    tail measures 11 to 25 cm (4.3 to 9.8 in) in length. Males usually weigh from
    18 to 30 kg (40 to 66 lb) and females weigh 10 to 21 kg (22 to 46 lb). Male
    lynxes from Siberia, where the species reaches the largest body size, can
    weigh up to 38 kg (84 lb) or reportedly even 45 kg (99 lb). It has powerful
    legs, with large webbed and furred paws that act like snowshoes. It also
    possesses a short "bobbed" tail with an all-black tip, black tufts of hair on its
    ears, and a long grey-and-white ruff.
Status and range
•   Balkan peninsula: The Balkan Lynx is found
    in Montenegro, Serbia, Macedonia, Kosovo,Albania, and
    possibly Greece.They can be found in remote mountainous regions of the
    Balkans, with the largest numbers in remote hills of western Macedonia.
    The Balkan Lynx is considered a national symbol of Macedonia, and it is
    depicted on the reverse of the Macedonian 5 denars coin, issued in
    1993. The name of Lynkestis, a Macedonian tribe, is translated as "Land of
    the Lynx" It has been on the brink of extinction for nearly a century.
    Numbers are estimated to be around one hundred, and the decline is due to
    illegal poaching.
Ohrid trout
 •   Ohrid trout or the Lake Ohrid brown trout (Salmo letnica) is
     an endemicspecies of trout in Lake Ohrid and in its tributaries and
     outlet, the Black Drim river, in the Republic of Macedonia and Albania in
     the Balkans. Locally the fish is known as Ohridska
     pastrmka in Macedonianand koran/korani in Albanian

                             Taxonomy
                  .
•Ohrid trout is part of the brown trout complex, and therefore its taxonomic status is
controversial.It has however been deemed to be genetically sufficiently distinct to be
regarded as a distinct species for conservation arguments.
