Jeff Wendorff's photography portfolio of Wolverines from the family Mustelidae - Weasels

The Wolverine /ˈwʊlvəriːn/, Gulo gulo (Gulo is Latin for "glutton"), also referred to as glutton, carcajou, skunk bear, or quickhatch, is the largest land-dwelling species of the family Mustelidae (weasels). It is a stocky and muscular carnivore, more closely resembling a small bear than other mustelids. The wolverine, a solitary animal,has a reputation for ferocity and strength out of proportion to its size, with the documented ability to kill prey many times larger than itself.


The wolverine can be found primarily in remote reaches of the Northern boreal forests and subarctic and alpine tundra of the Northern Hemisphere, with the greatest numbers in northern Canada, the U.S. state of Alaska, the Nordic countries of Europe, and throughout western Russia and Siberia.

The Wolverine is one of the many species that we have photographed on my wildlife photography workshops. You can learn more about my workshops online at www.wildlifeworkshops.com.
