“The Porcupine That Didn’t Like To Get Its Paws Wet, Part 1”
We have a small stream of water that runs through our property on its way to the brook. It’s a great spot for a #trailcam. This past summer I began to see footage of this one #porcupine that REALLY didn’t like having to cross this tiny width of water.
To be continued…
They will nurse for more than 3 months, while beginning to eat local vegetation. Maybe they’re born with it. They are.
Baby porcupines are born with quills, which actually take several hours to dry before becoming usable as protection. Should you ever offer a baby porcupine a belly rub? No. Just no. Touching a wild thing does not make everything groovy. Good point. 2/2
My porcupine sona! I rlly like tanukis but I don't feel like they represent me well. Porcus are one of my fav animals too ^^
Most of the time her quills lay flat, it only comes out when she feels threatened or furious. It's hidden somewhere in her hair. Pat at your own risk.

Watching Star vs. The Forces of Evil, S2E6: "This hyena / porcupine character's design is great, what are they called?"

"Oh. Well let's check a wiki-"
(Listed as "Unnamed porcupine monster")
"Ah. That unfortunately says a lot." #starvs #starvstheforcesofevil #tv #animation #porcupine

Back in the day when it was considered "cool" to have an edgy evil anti version of your main OC/sona I had one of my own. Here he is, the evil AU version of Funnel who's just known as "Vortex"
I could go on how the timelines diverged but I'll keep it short. Basically, while Funnel is a laid-back, calm, individual who's a free spirit and doesn't let the world get to him Vortex is a cruel, cynical, dictator who was corrupted by the world
I had a bit of an unusual visitor while #mothing in my backyard tonight. #porcupine #iNaturalist observation:
I got a new camera and went away for the weekend. I was walking around because my mom suggested I take a picture of the sunset. As I was walking closer to get a better view, I heard something... It sounded like a rodent, and I knew there were groundhogs nearby, so I followed it. Turns out, it was a young porcupine! #CanonR7 with 24-105 f4, turned out to be more like 168mm with the cropped sensor, so that's still pretty close. #porcupine #photography #wildlifephotgraphy
Just a tiny prehensile-tailed #porcupine called #Wilbur eating a slice of #banana 😂🍌🙌
He lived in the #OutOfAfricaWildlifePark in #Arizona and he was very loved for his kind and gentle nature and for his love of snacks. At 12 years old, he passed peacefully and will be missed dearly and he will never be forgotten.
