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!

It sure has been a super squee (even if a bit prickly) week hanging out with porcupines! Now it's time to say 'see ya later!'

The Internet Unraveled Trying to Figure Out What This Creature Is

A rare site caused a media storm online, when a very strange albino animal showed up at a Maine train museum, who turned to the internet for a identification, which ended exactly like you'd think. Though the staff were perplexed trying to figure out it's identity, the common consensus, besides a lost toupee, an albino skunk, or even albino groundhog. Some people even believed the Earth had finally gotten real Tribbles from Star Trek. Alas, it was not to be.

They slowly tried every species until one fit, which works relatively well, though the park rangers might have been a good next call to make before turning to internet denizens for aid. Though they were pretty on the money, as the majority correctly identified it as a young albino porcupine. While the species itself is not so rare, and in fact quite prevalent in Maine, only about 1 in every 10,000 are born albino.

The esteemed guest has become the official unofficial ambassador of the museum, with fans swapping stories of their encounters with him.

Last week you voted in the Squee Spree poll to determine if the possum or the porcupine is squeer. Turns out the porcupine, with all its prickles, makes you squee! Thank you for voting.

This porcupine is getting measured to determine his exact squee rating. Looks like it's through the roof!
