Porcupine

Maple was born in 2016. Maple was born in human care and thus cannot be released into the wild. Porcupines give birth to only one young a year, called a porcupette.

Porcupines are agile climbers and spend most of their lives up in trees. They eat the bark and leaves of many Northern Ontario trees. If you can’t find Maple, try looking up among the branches.
