Because of the movie character Wolverine, people sometimes think that wolverines and werewolves are interchangeable. Some people also think that wolves and wolverines are similar. Neither one of these comparisons however is even close to the truth. Wolverines are a very different type of creature altogether, and cannot be compared to either werewolves or wolves.

WolverineA wolverine is actually a member of the weasel family – if you get a quick glimpse of it, you might even mistake it for a bear!  They are about the size of a medium-sized dog, have thick fur covering their entire body, walk on all fours, and are very muscular. They are also extremely strong, and can take down an animal over twice its size.   And yes, wolverines do have sharp claws – one of the key characteristics the character Wolverine from the movie X-Men takes from his namesake.

So where can you find wolverines?

They prefer colder climates, and forests, and are most commonly seen in places like Siberia, Alaska, and parts of Russia.  And if you’re in one of these places and still aren’t sure if you’ve come across a wolverine, another tip is that they can produce a horrible stink.  You can smell where a wolverine has been…in fact, because of how horrible their stench is, they have actually been nicknamed “skunk bear”.

    yeah i like the mountain wolverines that blend into the environment with white and black fur coats…I seen a documentary about those things once. The ones i saw weren’t that lazy and domesticated. This animals were vicious beasts about the size of an average dog. I think it said they can get up to the size of a smaller mountain lion. I want one of these things as a familiar 🙂

    I knew there was, but never seen one before. Mostly because they don’t inhabit my area. Too warm for it I think
