Wikipedia article

This article is about the current version of DF.
A small, muscular, weasel-like creature. It is known for its ferocity.

Wolverines are small carnivorous creatures found in mountains and taigas. They are solitary, only appearing one at a time. Slightly larger than a honey badger, they behave in a similar fashion, being prone to rage and randomly going in a violent frenzy for a while, much to the dismay of any dwarf who happens to be at their vicinity when it happens. When not enraged, they are benign and will flee from other creatures instead. A newborn wolverine is called a wolverine kit.

Wolverines can be captured in cage traps and trained into cheap exotic pets. They provide equivalent returns to a dog when butchered, making them an emergency source of food if needed. A trained wolverine can serve as a potential distraction against intruders if it rages when they arrive, but don't expect it to survive the encounter.

Some dwarves like wolverines for their tenacity.

Admired for its tenacity.

The claws of a wolverine are made out of pure adamantine, and produce a distinctive 'snikt' sound when readied.
