To what animal family does the wolverine belong?

Answer :

The weasel family, Mustelidae.

Wolverines are mammals that lives in the remote Arctic and sub-Arctic regions of the world.

There are two sub-species of wolverine, the European Wolverine, G. g. gulo and the North American Wolverine, G. g. ulscus.

Wolverines are relatively slow, lumbering animals with short legs, wolverines do not chase or stalk prey.  Instead, they usually lie hidden in the trees or behind rocks and then pounce on their prey.

Wolverine is the largest member of the weasel family.
