Artist's Description

We saw this crested porcupine (Hystrix Cristata) in Kenya, Africa. It is a slow moving, but potentially dangerous creature. They are monogamous and live in family groups and forage together. If bothered, they rattle a tail that makes a hissing sound, if continually disturbed they attack the predator, back end facing the enemy. They have been known to have killed lions, hyenas, leopards and others in this manner
