Erethizontidae

American Porcupines

The family Erethizontidae is made up of the new world porcupines. Erethizontidae range from the arctic coast of North America to southern South America. This family is probably best known for the numerous sharp quills that cover the majority of their bodies. These quills serve as an almost impenetrable defense mechanism protecting Erethizontidae from most predators. All Erethizontidae belong to the Rodentia.
