What would you like to do?
when porcupines are born they automatically have their quills but the quills don't harden until a few days after, then they can use them as a defense mechanism
A porcupine has quills to defend themselves against harm's way (defend them from predators).
over 30,000 quills
The quills of a porcupine are modified hairs; they would not be described as fur, but they derive from fur in an evolutionary sense.
You can't eat porcupine quills anyway because they are made from material that's hard and can break your teeth. I wouldn't advise eating them anyway.
your leg gets cut really bad well it depends on how pointy the quills are
they shoot their quills
