N. American Porcupine
Alfalfa is a male porcupine that came from a wildlife facility in Wisconsin. Contrary to popular myth, porcupines cannot ‘shoot’ their quills. The second largest rodent in the US, porcupines have few natural predators. Humans propose the largest threat, as these animals frequently fall victim to road traffic. Alfalfa serves as a reminder of the need to understand our wildlife and the effect that we have on it. Alfalfa is one of the few non-predators housed here, but he has over 30,000 reasons why no one questions him!
