Oh hi widdle Porcupine! You're so squee I wish I could give you a hug, y'know, if you weren't covered in fierce, prickly spines.
I don't want to seem disparaging to your regular average porcupine baby, but I've gotta say... the coendou's trademark tail really gives them an edge in the squeeness department!
Squee lovers, the winners of this week's Squee Spree contest are itty bitty coendou babies! And just like their non-prehensile-tailed cousins, coendou tots look absolutely adorable, even when they're cranky!
When Irwin the porcupine said he always drinks his morning coffee to the dregs, he really wasn't kidding.
