Some animals that live in Portugal are wild goat, wild pig, fox, Iberian hare, and deer. The wolf lives in the remote parts of the far north and northeast, and the lynx inhabits the Malcata Mountains. Birdlife is rich because the peninsula lies on the winter migration route of western and central European species. In the Azores, only the smaller mammals are found—such as the rabbit, weasel, ferret, rat (brown and black), and mouse as well as various types of bats.
