The quills on a porcupine can vary in length depending on which part of the body they are on. When they are not scouting around for food, they shelter themselves in caves, rock crevices or burrows that they have created themselves. The porcupine will fend off any enemies by stamping their feet, clicking their teeth and growling or hissing while shaking their quills.

A porcupine generally eats roots, tubers, bark and fruit that has fallen from trees.
