    An excellent capture of this Porcupine! These guys are such interesting creatures, this doesn’t look like the North American species. Do you know which one?

  • Hi Robert, I not sure which species of Porcupine this is, will have to find out. They are fasinating animals, thanks, Mark.

    They are such interesting animals. Is this one native to England? Oh great shot by the way…lol

  • Thanks Rosemaree, we do not have these guys wild in the UK. This shot was taken at a Wildlife Park not too far from where I live, Mark.
