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!
Porcupines have sharp needles on their body, which they use as a defense against predators.
It is effective, but not effective when we want to hug them!
Guess these amazing pictures (below) will just have to do instead of the petting festival!
Check 'em out!
