A lone male wolverine arrived in northern Colorado earlier this month, making him the first confirmed wolverine in the state since 1919.
In December, conservation biologists had outfitted the young wolverine, which is part of a reintroduction program farther north, with a tracking collar and watched him make the 500-mile (805-kilometer) journey from the Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming, crossing rugged landscapes and even busy Interstate-80, reports the Denver Post.
Wolverines are commonly known as fearless, aggressive creatures. "Wolverines are the real 'iron men' of the animal kingdom," director of the Greater Yellowstone Wolverine Program, Robert Inman, said in a statement. Although they only weigh about 30 pounds (13.6 kilograms), they have been known to drag sizable carcasses and travel for long distances with their legs caught in traps. Their fearsome claws have even inspired superhero flicks.
