At the zoo the porcupines love snacking on fruits, veggies and branches, and they're great at finding them too! Their care staff hide them around their habitat for them to forage. ********************** Optional Funtivities ******************************** Create your own quills! Find objects around your house that can function in the same way a porcupine's quills do. Maybe toothpicks and popsicle sticks in an empty can or ball of clay? Or go outside and collect sticks and pinecones—develop your porcupine armor, and share a photo. You can create snack scavenger hunts too! Find some snacks that are in a package or put them in a baggie and hide them for someone else to find. You can create puzzle feeders with paper towel tubes or boxes. Take a video of someone solving your puzzle feeder or looking for snacks
