wolverine (Gulo gulo)

Wolverine from North America
The Wolverine, sometimes known as the Glutton, the largest of the weasel family on this continent. Once reputed to be violently aggressive and untamable, it has now been proved to be an amenable pet and highly intelligent. A predator and very strong for its size, it can pull down deer and even young moose. It is a bold and courageous animal that needs a rather large individual hunting territory, which it defends vigorously against encroachment.
