Your morning adorable: Baby porcupine eats a banana

May 2, 2009 |  9:54 am

This young porcupine, named Thistle, lost his mother when she was hit by a car; he was just a baby and was taken in by a wildlife rehabilitator. 

Since Thistle had become "imprinted" by living in close contact with humans, he wasn't able to go back to the wild.  Instead, he'll live out his days at the Wolf Ridge Environment Learning Center in Minnesota.  He's about two years old now and is acting as an ambassador for porcupines everywhere.
