These cuddly little critters will eat your face off. According to Wikipedia (our R3 go-to authority on everything other than comic books), wolverines are the largest land-dwelling member of the weasel family, with the giant otter being the largest overall. Also, "[They have] been known to give off a very strong, extremely unpleasant odor, giving rise to the nicknames 'skunk bear' and 'nasty cat.' Wolverines, like other mustelids, possess a special upper molar in the back of the mouth that is rotated 90 degrees, towards the inside of the mouth. This special characteristic allows wolverines to tear off meat from prey or carrion that has been frozen solid."
I know, right? Plus they've got adamantium claws, a wicked healing factor, and borderline-inappropriate relationships with teenage Asian girls.
