Quills help Porcupines swim

Because the quills of porcupines are hollow, they can float and swim well.

The rounded claws of a porcupine allow them to climb trees.

A porcupette, or baby porcupine has soft quills when it’s born–fortunately for its mother. But once it is an hour old, those quills become spiky.
