Baby Wolverines Are Not So Fierce
April 21, 2010
For the first time in thirteen years, Skansen (aka the Stockholm Zoo) welcomed the pitter patter of little wolverine paws! Since wolverine cubs are born hidden away in the den, the exact birth date is unclear. However, keepers suspect it was in the middle of February when mother Jonna started spending more time in the den and chasing away her mate, Untamo, when he got too close. When keepers spotted tiny footprints in the snow, they knew it was just a matter of time before the cubs would choose to make their debut, seen below:
