Wolverine - Species Detail

AKA: Gold: 10" Gold (Bow): 0"
Endangered: Silver: 0" Silver (Bow): 0"
Bronze: 0" Bronze (Bow): 0"
Gulo gulo

Glotón (Sp), Vielfrass (G), Glouton (F). Sometimes called glutton, in reference to its supposed eating habits.

DESCRIPTION Asian wolverines have a head and body length of 28-41 inches (71-104 cm), tail length of 7-10 inches (18-25 cm), shoulder height of 15-18 inches (38-46 cm), and weigh 28-65 pounds (13-29 kg). Females are smaller.

The largest terrestrial member of the weasel family, the wolverine looks rather like a small bear except for its short ears, longer tail, and distinctive flank bands and head markings. It has a heavy build with a large head, small rounded ears, shaggy tail and massive legs. Its fur is long and thick, blackish-brown in color, with yellowish patches on the head, and yellowish flank bands from shoulders to rump and across the base of the tail. Each paw has five toes with large, curved, non-retractile claws. The soles are naked in summer, densely haired in winter.

The Kamchatka-Chukotka populations, recognized by some authorities as the subspecies albus (northeastern wolverine), differs in that it is larger and has a larger skull, is lighter colored, and the yellowish flank bands are wider and usually meet across the top of the shoulders to form a complete horizontal ring.

HABITAT Tundra and taiga forest.

DISTRIBUTION Widespread and common across Siberia from the Urals to the Pacific, and extending marginally into Mongolia and Manchuria. Also on the Shantar Islands and Sakhalin.

TAXONOMIC NOTES Most authorities accept one species of wolverine (Gulo gulo) worldwide, and one subspecies in Asia (G. g. gulo). Some, however, separate the northeastern wolverine of Kamchatka and Chukotka as G. g. albus. We do not.
