15 astonishing facts about wolverines


Wolverine have a relatively long life span

Considering they live out in the wild and don’t ever hibernate, wolverines live a rather long time. The average lifespan for a wolverine is between 5 and 13 years, with some math suggesting that 10 years is the sweet spot. When you factor in how much traveling and hunting wolverines do on a daily basis, it stands to reason that the average wolverine lives a fairly active life.
