Where do Wolverines live ?

The habitat range of the largest representative of cunies, although slowly, but gradually becomes smaller. Now wolverines live in the taiga and forest-tundra of Eurasia and America, approaching the Arctic ice zone in the north, and down to the Scandinavian peninsula in the south. Wolverine countries are Norway, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia, Russian Federation, Mongolia, China, USA, Canada. Once they also met in the central regions of Europe, as well as in other parts of North America, but due to deforestation and the constant persecution of the Wolverines by man, in these parts they were exterminated.

Wolverine is an inhabitant of the northern forests. At first glance, it may seem that the wolverine is not adapted to life in the snow. But this is not so. Due to its large and wide paws, this animal practically does not fall into the snowdrifts and easily moves through the snow.

Each wolverine has a site from 1000 to 2000 kmĀ², on which she lives. Wandering around in his possessions, the wolveress drives away strangers and hunts. Male Wolverine admit to their possessions only individuals of the opposite sex. Male outsiders who crossed the border must be ready for a ruthless battle for life and death.
