Contrary to popular myth, a porcupine’s quills will not fire at enemies but rather will loosely embed in their skin and they easily shed on contact.  When threatened, a porcupine erects its quills and backs towards its assailant.  Porcupines often gnaw bones because they need their minerals and also to sharpen their powerful incisors.
