This was actually a very difficult animal to shoot, both from a focus and exposure perspective. The AF system of the 1DX, which I believe is second to none, really struggled to find focus and I got more out of focus images of this one than I can remeber having had with anything in the past. I also had to over expose by 1.3 stops to get the details in its fur.
I heard they can be fierce, and are not afraid of confrontation ...
Wolverine (female). This is shot from within the enclosure in Nordens Ark. This is an uncropped image shot at 200mm. A fantastic experience, to sit on the ground and have this animal walking up to me (too close for the liking of the keeper though).

Hey guy's not been online in a while but here are 2 from a shoot the other day with the 1dx and 85 1.2LII :-)

Aglet; I hope your day job's a stand up comic.
Ta - feel free
why isn't Canon focusing some efforts on creating sensors able to capture at least closer to the 24 stops the human eye can see?
Yes, the human eye is capable of seeing 24 stops of light... but even my 60D can see 40 stops of light.... (3 stops of aperture, 7 stops of ISO, 18 of shutter speed, and 12 stops of DR).... but only about 12 at a time.
And similarly that's how the eye works. You do not see the whole 24 stops at once. The iris adjusts to let light in, giving several stops of range, and in dim light you go to a very low resolution B+W sensor. Note how your eyes take time to adjust as you go from bright to dim areas... And on top of that, your "video feed" from your eyes is an incredibly processed predictive feed where the output is based on past events and not what you actually see, plus the resolution is highest NEAR the centre, falling off severely at the edges, and blank in the middle (blind spot). The mind takes this incredibly lousy video feed and processes it into what we perceive as vision.
In short, just about every camera out there has superior resolution and DR than the human eye.
Excuse my ignorance Guys, what's FPN ?? Sometimes I think I was born in the wrong Century.
Fixed Pattern Noise.
Some say Canon sensors are unusable because of how much worse they are with FPN than Nikon/Sony sensors.
Perhaps it's oil from a D600.
