On this episode of Breaking Trail Coyote hangs out with his new friend “Bud” an adorable Dwarf Porcupine, and oh boy does he love his treats!
Being a Mexican Hairy Dwarf Porcupine, Bud is unique from most other Porcupines in that he has a prehensile tail which enables him to hang from tree limbs to make himself better suited for an arboreal lifestyle in the rainforests of Costa Rica. In fact, this special quality has given Bud’s species the appropriate nickname of the “Tree Porcupine”.
However because he was hit by a car as a baby Bud no longer lives in the wild and now permanently resides at the Alturas Wildlife Sanctuary. Lucky for him he was rescued and rehabilitated by some of the best wildlife professionals in Latin America who give him all the love and attention a porcupine could possibly need…and of course there is a HUGE bonus perk to all of this…he now gets to feast on his favorite treats every single day! Not a bad way to live!
Get ready to get up close with one super amazing and super tiny Tree Porcupine!
