You are about to meet one incredibly cute porcupine who lives at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center and the interesting thing about him is that he thinks he is a puppy! His name is Stinkers, but his formerly known as Snickers, they changed his name to suit his ‘nature’ better. This quill-covered animal was someone’s pet before and perhaps that can explain his love for playing and getting human attention.
I can not understand why would anyone keep a wild animal as a pet. Not just because it is against the law in most of the countries, but also cause this animal is just not meant to live in a closed space. Stinkers now lives at the Center and what you can see on the video is a part of his play time with a caregiver. It seems that he enjoys the most those awesome belly rubs.
