Stocky shaggy-coated North American carnivorous mammal; SYN. carcajou, skunk bear, Gulo luscus.
Largest land member Gulo gulo of the weasel family (Mustelidae), found in Europe, Asia, and North America. It is stocky in build, about 1 m/3.3 ft long. Its long, thick fur is dark brown on the back and belly and lighter on the sides. It covers food that it cannot eat with an unpleasant secretion. Destruction of habitat and trapping for its fur have greatly reduced its numbers.
