    As far as woodland creature go they are kind of cute. I'd take an over abundance of those over some of the other creatures that inhabit the woods down here in Florida any day of the week.

    No doubt. Porcupine > boa.

    Boa constrictors are relatively tame compared to some of the other invasive species we have here. Every seen a pi$$ed off Nile Monitor lizard? Or a Reticulated Python? Heck a couple of years ago they found a Anaconda in a lake in Orlando, but they only found one, so they figured that it was an escaped illegal pet, I hope that's all it was! And Tegu lizards are pretty nasty too. We have them all and due to the climate here they can all thrive here.

    Then again, if you had a forest full of porcupines...you wouldn't have a forest.

    Maybe, but I'd still rather have some porcupines.

    Porcupines are cute and cuddly until they get scared and shoot you full of quills.

    They can't shoot their quills. And don't take their pumpkin.

    Yeah, I grew up in Florida. Pythons? In Florida, you're joking. Nile Monitor Lizards? Never heard of them. Tegu whats? All we had to deal with were coral snakes, rattlers, alligators, sharks, big cats, wild pigs, mosquitos and snow birds.

    Irresponsible pet owners are responsible for those new species. It should be a crime to release pets into the wild.

    Porcupines are cute until you piss them off... in that respect we are very alike.

    In other respects, they smell really bad and foreplay involves peeing all over your girlfriend.

    Is that where pine trees and pine cones from? Or is it the other way around. Pine trees have treesomes, scatter their cones and sap everywhere and 9 months later you get porucpines?

    Don't let the dogs "play" with them either - same can be said for coyotes, skunks, boas, etc. though.

    They come a lot bigger in the Northwest (this was near the Yukon/BC border). It just opened up those quills as if to say "just one inch closer buddy..."

    wow cute videos!

    I got some quills stuck in me just by photographing a dead one. as if I got too close to the corpse and they just shot out and stuck in me only because I made the slightest contact with them. wonder if they are spring loaded
    cycling is like baseball ~ it doesn't take much to make it interesting
