ABSTRACT
Wolverine, a meat-eating animal of the Northern Hemisphere. The name is probably derived from "wolf," although wolverines and wolves are not related. Other names are carcajou, skunk bear, and American glutton. (The European glutton is a separate, but closely related, species.) The wolverine lives chiefly in arctic and subarctic regions. Its fur is valued as a trimming for parka hoods because it does not collect moisture from the breath and thus remains free of frost.
