It’s True!

  • Porcupines are skilled tree climbers, with long claws, textured palms and quills that facilitate their climb and secure their perch.
  • A porcupine’s 30,000 quills cannot be fired, but they detach easily when touched.
  • Quills were traded like currency among early Native American tribes who valued them for their use in elaborate quillwork art.
  • When their natural diet lacks enough salt, porcupines will eat road salt, tires, and even wooden ax handles.
