Description (Initial Observations): Though primarily nocturnal, these large quill-covered mammals occasionally venture out into the daylight in search of tasty grubs or insects. Spinies are large mutated porcupines that grow up to two meters in length. They are slow-moving, preferring to climb a tree or use their quills to defend against predators.

Reactions: No known interactions

Behavior: Behavior modeling incomplete

Behavior: Behavior not recorded

Society: Most spinies are solitary, creating dens in hillsides or under fallen trees. Males and females come together to mate in autumn, after which the male remains to protect the pregnant female in her den. Young are born in late spring and the male leaves soon afterward.
