Animal of the day – 12/24/2010 – The Porcupine

Porcupine

The animal of the day is the Porcupine. (Did you know: Porcupines are EXCELLENT tree climbers. Actually, if you are looking for a porcupine, look up!

Porcupines are the 3rd largest rodent in the world! [yup, they’re basically giant prickly rats] The two bigger rodents are the beaver and the capybara.

Their pointy quills are just modified hairs, but tell that to this unlucky dog.

Is it as bad as it looks? Yes. It is exactly how bad it looks.

Don’t f*ck with porcupines.
