Did you know that the wolverine inhabits a wide variety of different habitats. The wolverine prefers, however, remote areas that are far away from humans and human activities. They are sensitive to disturbances caused by humans.

As rule of thumb, the wolverine is roughly the size of medium-sized dog, where an adult male wolverine weighs between 12 to 18kg, whereas an adult female wolverine weighs between 8 to 12kg. Also, wolverines that live north of their natural habitat range are generally larger than wolverines that inhabit areas further south.

Did you know that the western garter snake has one of the most diverse diets of all Canada’s native snakes, which allows these species it to live in so many different regions in Canada and America. Their diets consist primarily of soft-bodied invertebrates which include slugs, worms, snails, leeches, as well as tadpoles, frogs, other snakes, mice and freshwater, marine fish. In some cases, the western garter snake consumes small birds.
