Spike, Where Have You Been?

I have been looking everywhere for you! It’s like trying to find a needle in a haystack!

African Crested Porcupette born at Pueblo Zoo. Via boing boing.


  1. I wish Porkipines were more pettable,they seem like such sweet critters.

  2. Martha in Washington says:

    I totally agree with you, peg4x4! I would love to carry baby Spike around in my pocket!

  3. Porkys don’t have quills on their tummies. You know, FYI if you ever meet one and s/he rolls over for you.

  4. For what it’s worth, C.O. posted a video of somebody petting a porcupine last year: http://cuteoverload.com/2013/04/25/what-happens-when-you-pet-a-porcupine/ . Not sure that I’d want to *do* that, but the porcupine sure looks like it’s having fun.

  5. oh squee! At least the face look pettable.

  6. The petting would be fine as long as you don’t back up!

  7. What a tiny cutie!

    Nice hair-do. Clearly a rebel!

  9. I have only one word to say: Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. :)

  10. want to tickle that cute little ear !

  11. Smartypants says:

    …and I love that a baby porcupine is a ‘porcupette’!

  12. I call my stout little dog a ‘plumpette’.

  13. At least we can bop that adorable nose.

    Somewhere Lady Gaga is squeeing.

  14. Oh, I would put on body armor just to give that baby (and that puppy-pine from the other video) a hug! So redonkulously cute!
