Cute Overload :D
Who woulda thunk it? Bebeh porcupines are actually called Porcupettes. Sounds like a Meg worrrd (singsong). The things you learn on CO. File this one under Lingo You Need To Know.
From Zoo Vienna, the world’s oldest zoo! And female American Porcupine, born 4/4/14, Woodland Park Zoo. Via Zooborns.
Not so sure I would want to be the Momma giving birth to something with quills…just sayin..
Just-born porkypines got Soft quills so they don’t hurt Mama Porkypine. Someone told me this a long time ago. That person also said that the bebehs’ quills harden up pretty quick, so watchit!
Emmberrann, hopefully this little morsel is still in the fluffy quills stage ;)
Such a precious baby!
Who else wants to hear this little cutie’s voice as it munches that snackie-snack?
Aww, I would hug him if he weren’t so prickly!
“Meg worrrd” should be a tag!
Did somebody say she wanted to hear what a porcupet sounds like when it’s eating? Here’s a video from the mother of the original Disapproving Rabbit. This one was on CO some years ago, as I recollect.
