What Is a Baby Wolverine Called?

A baby wolverine can be called either a cub or kit. They are born fully furred with white fur in litters of an average of two or three kits per pregnancy.

The wolverine cubs are born without teeth and with their eyes closed, and they remain with their mother until they are weaned. Weaning usually occurs around nine or 10 months after the birth of the litter. Mother wolverines will move their kits to several different dens during this time in order to hide them from predators. They will often remain with their families until they are ready to mate.
