Porcupine Update

This week I found out the porcupine's name is Stickers, not Snickers. Several people have been calling him by the incorrect name. I also read somewhere that he is actually a she. Stickers is still up there begging for food and apparently has bitten a few fingers thinking he was being handed food. He needs to get back to eating pine bark! I even heard that some people have given him chocolate and gummy bears. That can't be good.

No wonder he/she is so fat! So I wonder who was brave enough to try and determine the gender.

Some time ago she was rescued and rehabilitated. I think they made a bad choice of where they released her back into the "wild!"

She is one cool porcupine.

"I even heard that some people have given him chocolate and gummy bears."

That could lead to a "sticky" situation.

Wait– aren't porcupines supposed to be prickly and small? This critter's got what looks like a supple fur and the heft of a Labrador retriever!

She needs to cut back on the choc before they start asking her for a ski pass on the slopes.

Cool photo!

I never realized they were so tame. Now I want one.

Porcupines crave salt

Oops, I was afraid fingers might be at risk.

But, B Squared, your wife says that with your prickly personality, you ARE one! ;-)
