Baby Porcupine Is First Of Its Kind Born At Chicago’s Brookfield Zoo
Meet Lucia & Eddie's baby boy, known as a porcupette. He is the first of his species to be born at the Brookfield Zoo and he's adorable.
At present, the little porcupette doesn't have a name. He was born on July 2 and didn't even weigh a whole pound. I didn't realize that when a porcupine is born, their quills are soft. Guess that a good thing for mom. The quills harden a few days later, according to wgntv.com.
