It's a porcupine... but which species!
We have a new animal at the zoo! What species, you ask? Take a guess based on this close-up image — we'll give you a definite answer by the end of the week. The mystery animal will go on exhibit this weekend, just in time for spring break. Be sure to stop by and say hi.
YES!!!!!!!!! Finally! I must come out there and say hello. Let's hope the weather clears up soon.
Answer time: These are the quills of an African crested porcupine. The zoo is now home to two of these animals, named named Sharpie and Nolina. Welcome! We'll post a photo of one of them soon.
