Species of the Month Porcupine

Quinte Conservation’s featured Species of the Month for November is the Porcupine. Porcupines are easily recognized by the stiff, thick quills that cover their body. Conservation Education Coordinator at Quinte Conservation, Nicole Campbell says, “Porcupines are short, fat and covered with as many as 30,000 spiny quills. Usually these quills lie flat against the body, but if danger threatens the porcupine will raise and spread them. The head is roundish with a blunt muzzle and small ears and eyes.
