The Loner

Wild - - HINTERLAND WHO’S WHO -

You might be fin­ished din­ner and think­ing about sugar cook­ies for dessert when you re­al­ize your Cousin Rochelle is still parked on the sofa, read­ing Harry Pot­ter. After un­wrap­ping presents ga­lore, she might need a lit­tle time on her own.

If your cousin were a Cana­dian an­i­mal, she’d be a Wolver­ine. Wolver­ines of­ten live on their own, far away from hu­mans and houses. How­ever they don’t stay in one place; these mam­mals love ad­ven­ture! Males have ranges up to 100 km2, while fe­males pre­fer to stick closer to home base — usu­ally in a 1,500 km2 ra­dius.
