Porcupines attempting to escape? That's why they dig such a big hole on the wall?? Take note of the injured porcupine with the exposed flesh & missing quills ... (Lost in fight, I presume..) Don't worry, the quills will grow back later on.. so the porcupine won't remain botak or bald forever :P
Too frequent, we heard stories that porcupine shoot their enemies with their quills. But the truth is that ... when necessary, the porcupine will quickly turn his/her back with the quills facing the intruders. The quills might dislodge from the porcupine, leaving them behind in the intruder's skin. That's how the porcupine dislodge the quills, not by shooting :D
This is how their "Home Sweet Home" looks like from afar :) Hahhaa, I hope no one will associate these cute porcupines with porcupine meat or dishes. Oops... suddenly Porcupine Balls pop into my mind..
