"Your Pet porcupine"! Buddy! You Do Not want him for a pet.
Do not invite him to stay.
He does Look cool though. He's sporting a Punk rocker do.
Watch them spikes We don't have porcupines in Oz, but I've heard about them.
Buddy-let him be your pet from a very safe distance???

Gma has seen them along I-94 and Missouri River. kisses,mazy
SMART tree topper !!!
Just... keep awayyyyyyyyy !!
Your pet?! Yeah, right!!
Your willow has got a pincushion sitting in it...OMD!! Don't provoke him, OK?
Do these dudes shed their quills like you shed fur? Then maybe you can get one fur a souvenir...just not in your schnooter...OUCH!
Growlmy said she heard these guys can shake their quills and it makes a rattling sound, does 'yours' do that, too?
A porky pine?? Is that some kinda new Chrissymus tree dey gots up dere? And duz it smell like bacon??
Freckles, mom heard this guy shake and he does rattle! I, of course, was in the house while this was happening. He shook right before mom took this picture, I guess he wanted to get his quills all aligned. They do not shed their quills, you have come into direct contact with the quills. Angel Abby found out they can really swing their tails and she got nailed by the tail of a porcupine and needed to be rushed to the emergency vet and she had surgery the next morning.
Finley, mom didn't get close enough to smell it, but she doesn't think it smells like bacon!
Buddy thats ONE COOL PIC your momma person got there.
