Porcupines are nocturnal animals, spending their days hidden in burrows in grasslands or forests on hillsides, venturing oᴜt at night to forage for food; sometimes they form small groups for activities. They give birth once a year, usually to 2-4 offspring, and the quills on a newborn porcupine are very soft but quickly harden. Porcupines are herbivores, feeding on plant-based foods such as melons, greens, corn, peanuts, beets, and potatoes.
