Porcupines

Porcupines

Porcupines are rodents with a coat of sharp spines, or quills. This sharp pines helps them to defend themselves from Predators. The name porcupine comes from Middle French porc espin (spined pig). A regional American name for the animal is quill pig. They occupy a short range of Habitats in tropical and temperate parts of America, Southern Asia, Europe, and Africa.They are the third largest of the rodents, behind the capybara and the beaver.Most porcupines vary about 25–36 in (64–91 cm) long, with an 8–10 in (20–25 cm) long tail. Weighing 12–35 lb (5.4–15.9 kg). Porcupines are round, large and slow and come in various shades of brown, gray, and the unusual white. Porcupines’ spiny protection resembles that of the unrelated erinaceomorph hedgehogs and monotreme echidnas.

The common porcupine is a herbivore. It eats leaves, herbs, twigs and green plants like clover and in the winter it eats bark of the trees. The North American porcupine climb on the trees to find food. The African porcupine are not the climbers, they roam on the grounds. Porcupines live in forests, deserts, rocky outcrops and hillsides. Some New World porcupines live in trees, but Old World porcupines stay on the rocks. Porcupines can be found on rocky areas up to 3,700 m (12,100 ft) high. Porcupines are generally nocturnal but are occasionally active during daylight.
