Not really sure what became of its family, but this little one wandered around our yard for almost a month alone. It seemed to especially enjoy the apples that had fallen to the ground.
Our main concern was carefully monitoring Asher as he loves to chase the wildlife, in hopes of catching it... and well, this fella' was NOT fast enough to avoid capture.
This baby porcupine is approximately as big as a Size 3 soccer ball ... not very big at all!
Check out those quills as it puffed up around the middle, making the back area flat... we were too close for comfort!
