Caïpi, a prehensile-tailed porcupin

//Caïpi, a prehensile-tailed porcupin

Caipi is a young female prehensile-tailed porcupin born on September 5th, 2020.

After 6 months of gestation, Tobi, our female prehensile-tailed porcupin gave birth to her first baby !

This birth, the 5th recorded on French soil, is all the more exceptional since the species is rare in captivity : only a few dozen individuals are recorded in European zoos.

Its red coat is going to be quickly replaced by beautiful black and white prickles. Between 2 and 3 months, it will already have the color and the size of an adult !
