    Who knew Clarence Nash was a porcupine?

    0:47 This is my corn!

    My coooooooooooooorn!

    In all seriousness porcupines are really sweet critters, I had the chance to pet one before actually. ^^

  4. Seriously, though, don’t feed him after midnight.

    I didn’t know they made noises like that.

    Or was that just some post production magic?

    if i had to pick a noise for porcupines, it would not have been anything nearly as adorable as that.

    After checking out some other quill pig videos, this really is what they sound like.  I’ve crossed paths with some huge porcupines in the woods of Wisconsin, but the only sound they made was a loud rustling of quills.

    After listening to Teddy, I know the true origin of Cousin Itt from the Addams Family.

    Did you see those teeth? She’s pretty brave to be trying to take that corn away.

    Am I the only one who heard clear as day “it’s my corn, it’s mine” and “get back!”?

  11. KatoKitty says:

    Too adorable for words!

    Also, I’m sure I heard “get back!” (0.25) and “back up!” (0.48).

    Are we sure that isn’t an Ewok?

  13. tsa says:

    Cute. I heard him say ‘lekker’ twice, which is Dutch for ‘yummie.’

    Sounds like one of those kawaii anime mascots/pet.

    Don`t tell the Japanese or we will have another “alpaca” incident!

    When I was a kid I’d go hunting with my Dad.  He would kill porcupines on sight because picking quills out of dogs mouths/throats sucked (not the porcupine’s fault but neither is it the fault of cattle that they taste so yummy).  I had no idea they could be so cute.  I haven’t hunted in 20 years and this just reaffirms that status.

    Drop the corn Lady!

  17. When I kept rats, they were highly socialized. I could pick them up and stick my finger in their mouth, and they wouldn’t bite. On the other hand, get them all riled up, and you’re not safe. One day I was absent-mindedly ruffling the fur on one of the rats. I didn’t notice that he had gotten all slow-motion tense and was sidling: literally presenting his side to me. This was the sign of a very annoyed rat, and signaled an immanent attack, but I was too busy being absent-minded to notice. 

    Now, in case you don’t know, a rat’s top teeth can actually splay out so that the bottom teeth can fit between. This gives a much more powerful bite against soft targets.

    Next thing I knew, CHOMP! Right on the finger. Bled all over the place. Had to press a tissue against the wound for a few hours before it would stop. Must’ve cut through a nerve, too, since I had a small spot on that finger where I couldn’t feel anything for a few years until the nerve regrew.

    Anyway, I guess the moral of the story is, you can do anything you want to a socialized animal, until they get annoyed. Then you should stop.

    I think the sound he made at 0:47 was porcupine for “f*** off!”

  21. oscarfalcon says:

    I love that he’s speaking (squeaking?) to her while enjoying his corn, Amazing!

    Everyone seems to be taking it very much for granted that this porcupine can talk. Seriously, WTF?
