Don’t Cuddle This Cute Porcupine

This is Charlotte, a prehensile-tailed porcupine. Don’t be fooled by her adorable exterior, those thick, sharp quills serve as an excellent defense against predators. Her claws and strong tail make her a superb tree climber. Native to Central and South America, the population of these porcupines could become an issue as their native habitat shrinks.
