Tue, Mar 28, 2023
LIVE at 3:00 PM ET / 2:00 PM CT / 1:00 PM MT / 12:00 PM PT
What’s the difference between the North American porcupine and its African counterpart? What does a Cape porcupine look like, and how is it different from a crested porcupine? Get to know the prickly porcupine (Latin for “quill pig”) with Expedition Leader Drew McCarthy. He’ll introduce us to the North American porcupine and the important ecological role these big, poky rodents play in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem, where he guides Nat Hab trips. Hear about the parallel evolution of porcupines around the world as Drew compares various species and where they live, how they use their quills, what they eat, what eats them, and what their mating habits and family units are like. He’ll also discuss some of the conservation challenges surrounding these quilled critters.
