Brazilian Porcupine – Signed Fine Art Print


Information about the Brazilian Porcupine:

The Brazilian Porcupine is a mostly tree-dwelling mammal found in the tropical rainforests of Brazil, Argentina, Venezuela, the Guyanas, Bolivia and Trinidad. The body is covered with short, thick spines which are whitish or yellowish in color, mixed with the darker hair, while the underside is grayish. The lips and nose are fleshy. The tail is prehensile, with the tip curling upward so as to get a better grip on tree branches. This porcupine can grow to forty inches long, but half of that is tail. It weighs about nine pounds. Its feet are reflective of their living in the trees with four long-clawed toes on each that are ideal for grasping branches. During the day it rests in a cavity in a hollow tree or in a well-shaded area of the canopy, 10-30 feet from the forest floor. It rarely descends to the ground, but it shows little fear if it happens to be caught. It is not aggressive but will defend itself ferociously if attacked. Its diet consists of leaves, fruit, and small fresh twigs and shoots. This creature can easily be tamed enough to be kept in captivity. When excited, porcupines stamp their hind feet. Vocalizations consist of growls and cries. If caught, the porcupine rolls into a ball.
