Wolverines are omnivores: they eat plants and animals, and their diets vary in composition depending on the season. Wolverines live in the cold, northernmost regions of Europe, North America and Asia. They may travel great distances, up to 15 miles each day, to find food if none is available within their local environments.
Wolverines generally consume plants, fruits, nuts and berries in the spring and summer when they bloom and ripen. Vegetation, however, typically supplements wolverines’ diets: they prefer to eat meat when it is available. Wolverines are approximately the size of foxes and frequently consume rabbits, rodents and smaller prey. They may attack large animals, such as caribou, elk and deer, when food sources are limited.
