We finished our day by photographing this adorable 5-day-old baby Porcupine. It was only about 6 inches long. Even adult Porcupines move pretty slowly but this little one barely moved from the spot where it was placed. When baby Porcupines are born, their quills are soft. (I’m sure the mother is happy about that!) The quills quickly harden, however, so the person handling this little one had to be very careful.
