Wolverine's Winter Wonderhome

During the Winter, female wolverines will dig up to 15 feet deep in the snow to build their dens.

Most wolverines give birth in February or March when there is still snow on the ground.  This allows them to use the snow to build their dens to protect their young from predators, and to protect them from the cold.
