  2. Nick – thanks and you know I slack time for creativity when I am posting lame jokes like this!

  3. Hah! What a waddle. (And I WILL remember the joke and spring it on some unsuspecting soul one of these days.

  5. Now all you need is some narration about our hero wlaking off into the sunset with some appropriate music playing in the background and an instant classic would be born! Really sick joke! I love it! Thanks for sharing the video.

  7. The only porcupine I ever saw was walking up a hilly trail in Allegany–I will never forget the slow deliberate movement–I guess that must be why they’re covered in a covering nobody wants to mess with!

    (I would be honored if you would consider adding my link to your bloglinks)

  8. Dear Tom,
    I have never seen a porcupine in the wild. I need more dirt roads around me.
    Love the video, listen to those birds.
    I wonder if my husband would consider retiring to a cabin in the woods. I am so tired of city life.

  9. He’s a porker! I can’t say I have ever seen a porcupine but when I lived in Utah, my poor dog would get the quills in his nose. I had to take pliers along every time I hiked. I don’t know that we have them in here in Virginia.

  10. The first porcupine I ever saw was at Oil Creek State Park when we were hiking above in the hills. We came across a quite little baby one on the trail, no parent around. It looked at us and then stuck his head in a pile of downed branches. He’d turn around at look to see if we were still there every once in a while. It was the cutest thing. It was like when little kids think they are invisible when they close their eyes. The adults are still kind of cute, ugly/cute. I love how he just takes his time.

    Aww, what a cute porcupine! All these videos of yours remind me that I have a backlog of my own video editing to do.

  12. Hardy har har! 😉 Thanks for sharing the video. Very neat!

  13. OMG, that porcupine is too cute! 😀
    This reminds me of the porcupine I spotted walking down our street one time when I was a kid. Afterwards I found some of his “needles” in the road, which I thought was so cool.

  14. I’ve never been lucky enough to see a live one in the wild – must have been pretty cool (especially since you were out of range).

    I have a friend who has a great story of coming face-to-face with one at night in a cabin in the Rocky Mountains (the porcupine was coming up to eat wood in the cabin and he turned on a flashlight to see it staring at him). His version of the story is much longer – and much funnier, though

  15. @ Bobbie – I have many others . . “what do you call a bear with no teeth? A Gummy Bear” or “What do you call a flying skunk? A Smell-a-copter”!! Thanks
    @ pwrbrder – kids love bad jokes!
    @ Vern – I really could have used some great music with that scene!
    @ Jayne – they are much more scared than we should be of them!
    @ Nina – No worries and my bad for missing in having you added! I know that you are on the top of my RSS feed but sometimes I accidentally overlook having things added to my blogroll! Consider it done!
    @ Sherry – Wow, they are soo common around here and hard to believe people never have seen them before! Actually, I think a porcupine is the reason for all my break line problems around new years this year! Maybe wait till summer and stay in one of our cabins here in Allegany!
    @ Joan – LOL! They do look that way when they are all puffed up like that! Just be careful taking those quills out! Always best to have a vet remove them!
    @ Erie – Aww, how cute and I can’t really remember my first time seeing one! Thanks for sharing!
    @ Heather – Yes, old video’s would be great!
    @ Lana – glad you enjoyed it!
    @ Lisa – they are cute for sure! Well when they are not chewing your break lines! The nettles are fun to find for sure!
    @ Marty – I like how you note “live one”! We had one chewing on our lean-to two summers ago while back packing! They really can find a way to give us memories!

  16. Very funny Tom 🙂

    30 January 2008 at 5:38 pm

  17. LOL Tom!!! I love how it waddles along! Very cool video!

  18. What a cute critter. I’ve only seen one once in the wild, and that was in southern Humboldt County, Ca, way out in the boonies. The porcupine was up in a tree, and if I remember correctly it was making a distinctly porcupine sound.

    I think they are such handsome creatures. I have only seen one once. You are lucky to see them occasionally where you are. The one I saw appeared larger than the one in your video. However it is difficult to get a feeling as to how big it really was. Maybe they were the same size. ??

  20. @ Bernie – thanks
    @ Pam – they are so funny to watch!
    @ Robin – They live in the trees and I am not sure if I have ever heard them make noise besides chewing!
    @ Lisa – they are great for sure and hard to judge size without being able to compare it to something! From my memory, it was a decent sized one!

  21. Cute! What a fun little prickly thing! I don’t think I’ve ever seen one in the wild.

  22. I’m with Sherry. I want to move to the woods and raise pork-u-pines :o)

    Nice to see one walking around. Most of the ones I see infrequently here are road kills. Thanks for sharing it.

  24. @ Misti – you don’t know what you are missing Misti!
    @ Mary – Maybe you can sell them during the christmas season?
    @ obi – we see them all the time and many times up in the trees!
