    Wolverine X

    Finland's forests hide a mysterious creature - a dark shadow that has produced a comic book character. This X-beast is a wolverine, a powerful carnivore with a mythical fame. Wildlife tracker and photographer, Antti Leinonen, has spent 19 years in the wilderness of Finland and he built up an unexpected image of one delicate, untamed community.

    He used every deceit to get a glimpse in the life of these secretive animals, a life that most of us can only hope of ever seeing... a life which is cheerful, quite and intensely unsafe. Through his astonishing approach this documentary is the first of its kind, exposing the wolverine in a way never before seen. It is time to disclose the reality about the Wolverine X.

    Unsociable, hazardous, and gory predators... at least that's the commonly held opinion. Disliked by the public, wolverine numbers have plummeted to precariously low levels, and that's why Antti dedicated 19 years to their story. 50,000 working hours and some ingenious technology started to give results. Spending lots of time hidden in the hide is the only way to observe wild wolverines. Antti knows one Wolverine family very well and we will follow them over their ups and downs in a year when they see both tragedy and a hope for the future.

    Over the years his total commitment has built up an impressive photographic record. It's valuable data that can help secure the future for these animals. What makes Antti's work so special is that these Wolverines are completely wild and very curious.

    Four masked hides continuously relocated around the wilderness ensure a good spot for observing any wolverine action. The wolverine doesn't see well but he does have an extraordinary sense of smell, so Antti with his cameras and lenses needs to be very careful, not disturbing their ultra-sensitive noses. Then there's endless endurance and patience.

    No one person can ever change the truth, but the truth, once learned, can and will change the person

    You must be the change you wish to see in the world when you are through changing, you are through

    Excellent, at last a lie can be set right and the beautiful world of the wolverine can be acknowledged for what they truly are.

    On Planet Earth the wolverine and raven were shown working together. The raven flies and calls. The wolverine follows. The raven finds a frozen carcass. The raven can't eat it. The wolverine's massively powerful jaws can rip apart a frozen elk. The wolverine does its job, takes a haunch, a leg, and buries them. Now the carcass is opened up and the raven comes in and has a nice meal.

    Teamwork!

    Marco, I don't know if a wolverine would ever meet a hyena but I imagine it'd be quite a battle. The wolverine has super powerful jaws and can heal from devastating injury. Their immune systems are as strong as their jaws. If you get bitten by one, aside from likely losing a limb you'd be at risk for major infection. They carry but don't get sick. Probably part of what gives them a bad rep.
