The North American Porcupine (Erethizon dorsatum), is the second largest rodent in North America and is considered a nuisance animal by some. Young are born in early spring; this juvenile was seen on the Look-out Trail on 30 June 2009. There are a few winter dens in the park, and many of our trees show the tell-tale gnaw marks of porcupine feeding.
