Hystricidae

Old World Porcupines

The family Hystricidae includes 11 species of porcupines found in Africa and Asia. These Old World rodents are large, with the largest weighing up to 25 kg (55lbs). Members of this family possess specialized pelage, or hairs, that are modified into sharp spikes or quills. These quills act as a deterent defence against larger predators. All Hystricidae belong to the Rodentia
