The wolverine, according to today's NYT, is small but phenomenally tough and determined, able to hold its own against much larger carnivores--but it rarely gets into fights because "it can probably bluff its way out of any confrontation." It roams as widely as the grizzly bear, which is ten times its size. It is intensely loyal to family -- males have been known to wait outside traps for their captured mates. And it is the only carnivore species in which fathers maintain contact with their young adult offspring.

Now I know why it's my mascot.

Go Blue!
