26-04-2012 : WOLVERINE CUBS BORN AT COTSWOLD WILDLIFE PARK

Three wolverine cubs have been born at the Cotswold Wildlife Park near Burford in Oxfordshire.

The new cubs were born to Sharapova and her mate Sarka at the end of January and have recently emerged from their den.

The wolverine is part of the weasel family and are found primarily in remote reaches of Scandinavia, Canada, the northern US and Russia.

The wolverine which is also related to otters, polecats and badgers look similar to the otter but is larger with more fur.

Jamie Craig, curator of Cotswold Wildlife Park said The wolverines are a particular favourite at the park and certainly do not deserve their fearsome reputation.

We are delighted to be the first UK collection to breed this species and the cubs will eventually move on to become important breeding animals in other European zoos.

The cubs have been given the Finnish names Ensin, Nalka and Niemi since the species feature prominently in many Finnish myths and legends.

If you would like to visit The Cotswold Wildlife Park and see the young wolverines book a Canal Boat Holiday from Gayton Marina and cruise in your Canal Boat along the Oxford Canal.

A cruise on The Oxford Canal is a peaceful and charming and is dotted with pretty canal villages and black and white lift bridges.

From the dreaming spires of Oxford to the rolling hills and the attraction in the Cotswolds the route exudes a timeless charm which can be enjoyed to the full from a a slow moving Canal Boat.

Your Canal Boat Holiday exploring the Oxford Canal will be a delight from start to finish.
