North American Porcupine
Did you know our Penelope is a “night owl”? North American porcupines are nocturnal, which means they’re active at night. They are excellent climbers, using their long curved claws, rough foot pads and even their tails to help them climb!
This special animal ambassador was born and raised in captivity. Since Penelope has been with people her entire life, she is habituated to our care at Lindsay and cannot be released. If you’re thinking of adopting Penelope, we will be “all aquiver” with excitement!
