A wolverine, also known as a glutton or carcajou, is a stocky and muscular carnivore belonging to the weasel family. It's known for its powerful build, strong jaws, and resilience in harsh environments.
Wolverines are primarily found in the remote reaches of the Northern boreal forests and subarctic and alpine tundras of the Northern Hemisphere, particularly in northern Canada, Alaska, and Russia.
The conservation status varies by region, but wolverines are generally considered of 'Least Concern'. However, in some areas, they are rare and are vulnerable to habitat fragmentation, human disturbance, and climate change.
Despite its small size (often compared to a medium-sized dog), the wolverine is a fierce and powerful animal. Males can weigh up to 30 kg (66 lbs) and females up to 18 kg (40 lbs).
Wolverines are omnivores. They primarily feed on small to large-sized mammals, carrion, but also consume birds, insects, berries, and plants depending on the availability.
Wolverines have a reputation for being fearless and can defend their food against larger predators. However, they generally avoid human interactions.
The hunting season varies by region and is subject to local regulations. Always check with local wildlife authorities before planning a hunt.
Males are significantly larger than females and have broader heads. However, telling them apart in the wild can be challenging without close inspection.
Wolverines have dense fur that's resistant to frost and large, padded feet that act like snowshoes, enabling them to travel across deep snow.
