Discover Western Montana’s Wolverines

The elusive Wolverine is the largest land-dwelling species of the weasel family. With its stocky and muscular build, it is considered to be a carnivorous animal but may also feed on plants, berries and nuts. Its fur is long, dense and glossy brown, with stripes of dull yellow along its sides. An adult Wolverine weighs 22–55 pounds and is about 2 – 3 three feet long and looks like a small bear. These animals are known to give off a strong, unpleasant odor and are considered to be very ferocious. For more, visit Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks.
