Gulo is Latin for ‘glutton’. The wolverine is a strong and versatile predator and scavenger. It can catch prey many times larger than itself. Wolverines eat everything from moose and mountain goats to squirrels, birds’ eggs and berries. They eat a lot of meat, and they even know how to store it for later. Wolverines use snow as refrigerators, creating caches for food such as meat from reindeer carcasses. During times when food is hard to find, the wolverines will go back to their stash to retrieve a meal.
