Contrary to my fear as a child...porcupines cannot throw their quills into an attacker's skin. This evidently is a myth...makes for a good story but not true. However, it is not a myth that a porcupine makes for a perfect black and white picture...at least this one does.
When I converted this to black and white...not much in the image changed...the porcupine was balck and white to begin with and in the dark area in which he was photographed...the other colors were muted as well.
Even though they can't throw their quills...I still wouldn't consider having a porcupine as a lap pet.
