Two Baby Goats Meet A Porcupine and Things Get A Little Prickly

First Encounters: Two Kid Goats Meeting Up With a Porcupine

For the love of baby animals, you have to see this. A tiny Nigerian dwarf goat kid, Ruth and mini Nubian goat kid, Sonia are introduced for the first time to a porcupine, while out on their daily walk at the Oregon zoo. The porcupine is named Sharpie, for some or other peculiar reason…

Zookeeper Brianne Zanella does not only tell us about the introduction, but also educate the viewer on some of the interesting information of all the animal types involved in this scheduled meeting. She dispels one of the biggest myths surrounding the porcupine.
