Everett adopted a Detroit Zoo wolverine for me for Valentine's Day last year. The zoo's "Wildlife Preservers" adoption package came with a cute stuffed wolverine that we named Winchell.

 

Detroit's wolverines produced 2 kits in 2005, who were fondly nicknamed Bucky and Sparty by the zookeepers. At the time, there were only 77 wolverines in captivity in North America, and Aggie's litter was the only pair of surviving kits that year--and Detroit's first surviving wolverine kits ever. Their official names are now Tamarack and Tilia.
