Teddy bear the porcupine loves to snack, just as much as he loves to talk about his snack. Teddy Bear has found some delicious pumpkins for his Halloween feast.
Porcupines like Teddy Bear are herbivores, meaning they eat plants – so things like pumpkins, fruit, leaves, and even buds of flowers are all a porcupine’s diet. Probably the greatest thing about porcupines – and especially about Teddy Bear – is the adorable sounds that they make. You wouldn’t be able to tell that they were so prickly from a conversation with one! source
Porcupines, Teddy Bear included, can’t see very well, but their sense of smell is stellar. They are not territorial, and they love salt (though some apparently love pumpkins too!). It is important to know that due to roads and predation by big cats, porcupines are considered threatened. Read More
While Teddy Bear munches on his pumpkins, let’s discuss some porcupine facts, such as their diet and habitat, and more.
While Teddy Bear is a pet porcupine, they usually live in trees in North and South America. Teddy Bear is a North American porcupine, meaning that he is the largest kind of porcupine and no doubt has thirty thousand or more sharp quills. These quills usually lie flat, until a porcupine is threatened – while they can’t actually shoot quills as previously thought, they do detach easily enough for an unlucky predator to get a mouthful of sharp quills instead of a porcupine. The quills are difficult to remove once they’re attached to something other than a porcupine!
Porcupines are divided into New World and Old World porcupines – these two are not closely related, other than being in the same family of rodents. Porcupines can live in deserts, forests, and grasslands – New World porcupines like Teddy Bear live in trees, while Old World porcupines prefer the ground.
