ZooMontana in Billings, which is the only zoo in the state, has welcomed it's newest fur baby. The zoo announced that the birth of a baby wolverine has taken place. The baby kit is only the third wolverine born at ZooMontana.

Ahmari, which is the baby kit's mom, is taking good care of the newest member of ZooMontana. The father, Sid, is keeping his distance until momma is comfortable and ready to let the baby kit be a bit more independent.

When wolverines are born they're blind, all white, and they typically weigh less than one pound. The momma's are very protective and they keep the baby kit to themselves until they start to feel more comfortable.

After weening for approximately 10 weeks, the kit should be adult size by the end of the year.
