further on wolverines…I learned today that they are actually on the endangered list for North America, although in the Yukon wolverines are doing well, especially in the Old Crow region just north of here (things aren’t so great in Alaska, apparently). I was listening to David Henry, a conservation ecologist, on CBC; he describes the wolverine as being similar to the grizzly bear! it’s the biggest weasel in the world, with the largest feet-to-body ratio of any mammal anywhere…so the wolverine is actually BigFoot.
