Thread: Porcupines

  1. #1

    Default Porcupines

    The name rodent has some negative connotations and stereotypes but ya know, I don't think there are a cuter family of animals in the whole world. I mean there are hamsters and most know how fluffy they are but what about pygmy mice? They're so sweet.

    But ya know a rodent that is equal parts adorable and badass? Porcupines. I've never been close to one in real life and the first time i remember seeing a porcupine was in the film Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey. The movie didn't exactly vilify the thing but the mere fact it hurt our hero Chance kinda put it in a bad light. But after reading more about them and seeing some videos, they're probably one of my favorite animals.

    Do you have any experiences with porcupines? What do you think of the animals?

    I've never seen a porcupine but I do quite like name. Porcupine actually means 'One who rises up in anger'.

    Maybe it should be Final Fantasy villain.

    I've only ever seen them as road kill, unfortunately.

    "A male porcupine urinates on a female porcupine prior to mating, spraying the urine at high velocity."

    Lovely.
