A wolverine can weigh up to 20 kg and may grow to 45 cm in height. With its 15 cm tail it can measure up to 1 m in length. Its forehead and cheeks and a broad stripe from the shoulders to the base of the tail are yellowish white in colour. The rest of the coat is brown. Since the wolverine moves slowly and very noisily, almost blundering, in summer it is not capable of living from hunted prey, instead eating carrion and berries. In the winter on the other hand the wolverine can barely be heard on the snow-covered ground. It has a great advantage over other large animals because, thanks to its broad feet, it hardly sinks into the snow at all. At this time of year its diet contains a wide range of prey animals.
