The Southern crested Porcupine of Central Africa would seriously be an animal I would highly avoid in future interactions as they are really a bit of a prick.
These porcupines are extremely agile and quite fast moving and almost impossible to capture barehanded, in this situation I manage to wrangle a large specimen and try to figure out a point of weakness enabling me to capture this porcupine swiftly and safely.
The porcupine was safely relocated, released cautiously and unharmed.
