This porcupine set up home under our front deck. Nothing would induce him to move, so I had to dismantle the deck to chase him out. Not a desirable animal to have around as dogs soon discover.
When threatened the porcupine presents its rear end - a ball of barbed spikes. These finish up in the snout of the unfortunate predator.
