Scientific Name: Erethizon dorsatum
Porcupines are some of the most interesting looking rodents on the planet. This is no doubt a consequence of those 30,000 pointed quills that cover their bodies! While this mammal is found mainly in forested areas, when their homes overlap with ours they can cause quite a stir. You will most certainly want to know if you have porcupines in your yard and gardens.
