To be fair theres no evidence at all to what this thing is, sharp looking hair or quills is not enough to conclude porcipine. Also i see alot of them and i have never seen one this size, that thing would be a world record Pine.

My apologies for the tripled thread!!!

If they can climb at all (which they can), then why would there be a limit to how high?


Wow! You learn something new everyday!
I never would've thought they'd be the type of animal to climb.
I sort of assumed they'd live underground.

Never mind anyway, I think if I was in those woods due to the fact the things up a tree that high I mighta got enough bravado to shout 'boo!' or something and try and get it to move.
Unless it's got wings aswell, you could probably get out of there in enough time so it'd get bored and not follow.

As a university trained wildlife biologist, I am asserting my expert opinion. The image is clearly a porcupine. I have studied them, their anatomy, their habitat, their morphology, etc...

By what measure are you determining size? Do we see something besides the tree branch or the animal itself that would give us a basis to judge size?

Fast facts on porcupines

Type: Mammal

"The porcupines found in North and South America are good climbers and spend much of their time in trees. Some even have prehensile (gripping) tails to aid in climbing. The North American porcupine is the only species that lives in the U.S. and Canada, and is the largest of all porcupines."
