Got a nice fat brown/white beauty here. After greeting me with turning tail and considering quilling me (her butt went into the shape) after I greeted her with my small caliber semi going "click" extremely loudly. I think she'd heard a click before.
Then I had my jam cleared (with first shot unfired, yet very clearly dimpled where it should be.... argh) and was back on her. Luckily her little brain continued to decide to chew on my house in the mean time. She gave me a great shot at the vitals (how the heck small are they are her?) and stood to give me a menacing stare so I plugged her right there. They really do put out a smell when they're excited/threatened.
The claws and teeth look ripe for a kids project here or at scouts, and the quills of course. Being new to porcupines, am I missing something I could share with kids for fun?
