An awesome video that has gone viral shows two porcupines bravely fending off repeated attacks by a ferocious leopard to kill their babies. The parents form a protective ring around the two babies and each time the leopard attacks they come in the way with their sharp quills protruding out. The crafty leopard keeps changing his angle of attack through 360 degrees but the porcupines are able to fend him off. They even have the deadly beast retreating on occasions.
Porcupine parents provide Z class security to their baby from a leopard,fighting valiantly & thwarting all attempts of the leopard to even touch their baby. Most incredible ❤️ By the way a baby porcupine is called 'porcupette'. Video- unknown shared on SM pic.twitter.com/wUdVb3RTs7
