September 18, 2006Getting shown up by an animal a fraction
of your size is one thing, but getting schooled by a little critter
in front of a bunch of your predator buddies? Ouch.
Watch an African crested porcupine prove that the quill is mightier than the fang as it pits its bristles against the claws of a group of curious lion cubs. Then stay tuned as another one of the small, bristled beasts charges its way through a pride of adult lions, showing that a little attitudeplus a back full of sharp, hollow spinescan go a long way.
