Porcupines can’t jump: Camera traps in the forest canopy reveal dwarf porcupine behavior

24 junio 2015

A team of researchers documenting the use of natural canopy bridges over a pipeline clearing with camera traps in Peru found an unexpected animal using some of the bridges. At least 17 dwarf porcupines were photographed. Previously known only as far south as Iquitos in Northern Peru, the discovery was made some 900km away from the closest previous record.
