The Baby African Crested Porcupine is found in different parts of Africa and Italy.

As they grow into adults, their quills can get up to 2 feet long.

To see this young porcupine, visit the Louisiana Purchase and Gardens and Zoo porcupine exhibit.

Rendezvous at the Zoo is underway. The afternoon event is scheduled for March 26 in partnership with the restaurant association. It will have a train and boat rides for people to enjoy.

Lisa says there will be more information later to come. To stay up to date check out their website.
