Friendly Porcupine Thinks He is a Puppy

Snickers the Porcupine loves to play and get attention. The large, quill-covered animal lives at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center, which adopted Snickers after someone had been keeping him as a pet.

Because of his gregarious, friendly nature and love for human contact, he is a permanent resident at the Center.

Watch as one of his caregiver’s gives the affectionate porcupine pets, hugs and belly rubs!
