Prickly has never been so cute!

A Prehensile-Tailed Porcupine was born at the Stone Zoo about a month ago, and it is one cute prick!

Obviously we can't be running off and petting this adorable little guy because well that's dangerous!

Oh, well.

Guess these amazing pictures (below) will just have to do instead of the petting festival!

Check 'em out!

Poor gurl…

Bella is able to go home after a porcupine got the best of her during some family time at the pool.

The spiky attacker wants a drink to cool off from the scorching heat.

Bella and her doggies siblings got a bit too close and she was stuck with over 500 painful quills in face, fets, and mouth.
