The Wolverine, also known as the Gulo gulo, is a stocky and muscular mammal that belongs to the weasel family. They have a thick, dark brown fur that helps them survive in cold environments. Wolverines have sharp claws and powerful jaws that allow them to hunt and scavenge for food. They are known for their ferocity and tenacity, and are able to take down prey much larger than themselves.
Fun Fact: Wolverines have a reputation for being tough and fearless, and are known to attack animals much larger than themselves, such as moose and caribou.
Contender 2: Skunk
The skunk is a small to medium-sized mammal best known for its ability to secrete a pungent odor when threatened. Skunks are identifiable by their black fur with a distinctive white stripe that runs down their back and tail. They have a small head, short legs, and a bushy tail. Skunks are omnivores and feed on a varied diet, including insects, small rodents, fruits, and plants.
Fun Fact: Skunks are not as indiscriminate with their spray as people often believe; they can accurately spray their scent at a target up to 10 feet away.
