Stand back! W-a-y back! Real porcupine quills can prick! Will your critter be friendly or fierce?
Porcupines are good climbers. They stay in trees and usually come out at night. Look at pictures of them to see their quill-covered backs and tails. Has anyone you know ever seen a porcupine? Ask them! Porcupines only live in the Americas and Africa.
Porcupines make a warning noise to let you know they’re around. Then they lower their heads and raise their quills. Often they shake their bodies to make their quills rattle. It’s a myth that they throw their quills. But they can hurt attackers with their raised quills by backing into them or hitting them with their tails. Here’s one way to make a prickly porcupine.
Mix the color from Crayola® Washable Markers into white Crayola Model Magic. Knead to get the colors you like. Sculpt a porcupine or a porcupette (baby porcupine).
Poke the surface with a wooden toothpick for texture. Or, if your porcupine is excited, leave the toothpicks stuck in the porcupine for quills. Where will your porcupine perch?
