Baby porcupines are usually born during April or May. They are called "porcupettes". They have soft quills when they are born, but with exposure to air, they grow stronger each day.
A cute little baby porcupine carved of a nice specimen of Orange Spiny Oyster Shell and inlaid eyes of grade Lapis. The smallest carving of a porcupine on our site.
