An other what? :)

Maybe it was a baby bigfoot! I thought I saw a "baby bigfoot" once...on closer examination, it turned out to be a black dog. :)

In dutch a wolverine is called a 'veelvraat', literally an eats-a-lot.

So that's what they look like. :eh:

Kind of like a cross between a ferret, and a racoon.

No kidding. They aren't nicknamed "devil bear" for nothing.

Except for this:
Gulo gulo's head and body length is 65-105 cm and tail length is 17-26 cm. Mass 7 to 32 kg.
Big!

I've seen some pretty big racoons! (Once, in Bellingham WA, I saw one at night I thought was a *pig*.. he was HUGE. Scared the .. stuffing out of me)

Wolverines can even break into canned goods with their sharp canines. Wolverines are supposedly very difficult to trap; when a wolverine finds a trap, it may spring it by turning it upside down or by dropping a stick into it. Wolverines have also been known to carry traps away and bury them deep in the snow.
I like these animals :)

Doing a little Googling i just discover a Wolverine is called a Glouton in French . This name is also an adjective meaning "eating too much". And i think the english word GLUTON came from it.

I'd suggest, though, that the shrew is a better candidate for that name, given that some species of shrew eat... 10? times their own weight every day

Another problem is that wolverines are members of the weasel family. This means they can produce bad-smelling oil, like skunks but not quite as bad. Generally, anything they don't eat they cover in this oil which makes it smell really bad.

Smelly oil, obviously.

:LOL: I was going to edit my post to ask that, and warn that answers like "bathtub" or 'lake' would not be accepted
