24 Hours: African Brush-Tailed Porcupine (Atherurus africanus)
The African brush-tailed porcupine lives in Kenya, Gambia, and Zaire. It hangs out in caves during the day and is nocturnal to the point of not coming out if there’s a bright full moon. They attack their enemies by backing into them, releasing their spines from their backs. Yansci requested a porcupine, and Ted got to pick the species.
