Penguin here.

I don’t have much to say about this picture other than the obvious “it’s super adorable”! Both the mother porcupine and her baby look like they’re straight out of an 80’s hair metal band, but the style certainly suits them. It’s also sweet that they’re being so affectionate with each other.
By the way, did you know that porcupines are the third largest rodents (which I learned from Wikipedia)? They only trail the beaver and then the capybara (the largest of rodents) in size. You can always learn an interesting tidbit when consulting Wikipedia!
