15 astonishing facts about wolverines


They have extremely powerful teeth and jaws

Earlier you learned that wolverines sometimes consume carrion instead of doing their own hunting, and also that wolverines don’t hibernate in the winter. Put those two together and it’s obvious that wolverines will sometimes have to eat meat that is frozen—but that’s no bother. Wolverines possess very powerful teeth and jaws, which they use to bite through not only frozen meat but also bone and hooves.
