May 3, 1805

The North American Porcupine has a large chunky body, with short legs. The porcupine has long brown hairs on front half of it's body and over 30,000 quills, which it uses to defend itself against more agile predators. The quills are located on the rump  an tail. The porcupine is probably not the most softest animal to be petting.
