We stock North American Porcupine Skulls measuring between 5 and 6 inches and African Porcupine Skulls or Cape Porcupine Skulls, Hystrix africaeaustralis. The skulls will measure between 5 inches and 6 inches. African Porcupines are the largest rodent in their region. Females are, on average, about 2 pounds heavier than males. Porcupines are covered with flat, bristly hairs and have quills and spines on the posterior back and flanks. The difference between quills and spines is largely one of length and thickness, with spines up to 50 cm long and quills up to 30 cm long. The white and black crest of spines and quills can be erected at will to make the animal look enormous and threatening. The North American porcupine, also known as the Canadian porcupine or common porcupine, is a large rodent in the New World porcupine family. The porcupine is the only native North American mammal with antibiotics in its skin. Those antibiotics prevent infection when a porcupine falls out of a tree and is stuck with its own quills upon hitting the ground. Porcupines fall out of trees fairly often because they are highly tempted by the succulent buds and twigs at the ends of the branches.
