Claws Babies have white fur Powerful jaws They use their sharp claws to defend themselves against larger animals. Their white fur helps them blend in with the snow Their powerful jaws help them rip into meat so they can eat.
Wolverine kits, or babies, are born with white fur like polar bear cubs. Their fur is hydrophobic, which means it is waterproof, snow- proof, and frost-proof.
Wolverines’ range will decrease because they don’t have enough snow. Climate change makes it warmer and their snow melts. They need snow to protect their babies.
