Thanks Leon. I was scouting out an area that I had not been to and saw this fuzzy blob in a tree. Decided to investigate and was surprised to see a porcupine. I have not done much studying of these guys and didn't know they climb up in trees. It appears they like the bark on smaller branches.

Funny enough, they spend most of their life in trees eating the bark , and they are among the worlds WORST climbers! If you walk around their habitat a lot you will see a lot of "fall-kill"...they really should wear climbing harnesses... :)

LOL, go figure, they definitely moved very cautiously on their perches. Thanks for the info.

I'd be careful walking under trees, then. How bad would it suck to have a porky-pine fall on your noggin?
