African Crested Porcupine (Hystrix cristata, Stekelvarken)

A common misconception about Porcupine is that they can throw their Quills when intimidated. This is not true. Porcupine actually imbed their quills into an attacker, and shake their bodies to dislodge. Attacks by a porcupine have been known to take down Lions, Leopards, Hyena, and even humans.

Quills are not only a beautiful and dangerous creation, but they are commonly used for crafting purposes. These are strong and versatile, and commonly used in pen quill making.


You will recieve a randomly chosen Quill in either a Black or Blonde tone.
