Crested Porcupine (Hystrix cristata)
Throughout the month of March 2020, FaunaFocus will feature its first rodent, the crested porcupine!
The crested porcupine is an Old World porcupine inhabiting Italy, North Africa, and sub-Saharan Africa named for its impressive and defensive crest of 35 centimeter-long quills. Mostly herbivorous, this rodent forages long distances in search of food and lives and breeds in underground burrows in monogamy.
Create art inspired by the crested porcupine and share it in the FaunaFocus Discord Server or on social media with #faunafocus. Learn about more ways to get involved with FaunaFocus!
