WATCH: Wolverine Strolls On By, Casually Carrying Goats Head
So there you are just minding your own business, out on an afternoon hike, and a wolverine walks casually by, caring a goat's head in his mouth.
Just another day in the wilderness. Nothing to see here.
But if you want to see it you can watch the video of this below.
Before I get into more details let's be clear, we are not talking about Wolverine, from the X-men comics.
Though there is a reason that character was named after the little furry forest beast.
The reason the comics chose to make a hero out of the little animal is because, despite their small size, real wolverines are very strong, very fast, and can take on and kill animals much larger than them.
Wolverine from the comics is short but very powerful, fast, and ferociously aggressive.
The wolverine in nature usually weighs between 17 and 40 pounds, stands up to 1.5 feet tall, and is generally 33 to 44 inches long (including tail). The male is larger than the female.
Wolverines live in the Sierra Nevada mountains of California, and the southern Rocky Mountains in Colorado, Wyoming, and New Mexico. They also reside in Alaska, Canada, and Russia.
Watch as two wolves try to attack this wolverine. They should have brought more wolves.
So back to our fuzzy little friend that was carrying the goat's head.
These animals are known to take down prey much bigger than them and leave a hell of a mess as they eat them.
These animals are known to be fearless and ferocious.
Yet at the same time, they have been seen as gentle and fun animals when they don't see any threat near them.
Oh, and much like Wolverine from the comics, the actual creature has retractable claws as well.
