Porcupine Fun

We have two species of porcupine at Orana Wildlife Park; Cape Porcupine and African Crested Porcupine. Our newest arrivals are a pair of Cape Porcupine making their home on the south side of Kopje Rock, beside our Meerkats:

We are very fortunate that, through our partnership with Children's University, we were able to place two cameras in the exhibit for the Cape Porcupine...would you like to see?

This is true reality television, so we can't guarantee that the porcupine will be in view, or that they will perform for you, but this is probably your best opportunity to see and hear Cape Porcupine from home!
