PORCUPINE / ISTOCKPHOTO
April 4, 2019.
The porcupine is adapted to a wide variety of habitats and can be found in temperate forests, arid regions, riparian zones, rocky slopes and in pastures.
Its diet consists of vegetables, roots, stems, leaves, flowers, fruits and seeds, and during the winter it can feed on the inner bark of trees.
This species is considered endangered in Mexico, since its distribution is very limited. Fortunately, some specimens can be seen in El Carmen Nature Reserve during its breeding season in the months of September and October.
