Crested Porcupines

Native to Italy, North Africa and sub-Saharan Africa.
African crested porcupines eat tubers, bark, bulbs, fallen fruit and cultivated root crops.

The crested porcupine is a terrestrial mammal; they very seldom climb trees, but can swim. They are nocturnal and monogamous. The crested porcupine takes care of the young for a long time and small family groups consist of the adult pair and young of various ages. In defense, when disturbed, they raise and fan their quills to make themselves look bigger.
