The crested porcupine is a species of rodent in the family Hystricidae. It is extant in Italy, North Africa and sub-Saharan Africa. The sharp, sturdy quills of the African crested porcupine give it highly effective protection against predators. Its body is covered with coarse quills 1 to 13 inches long and of varying thicknesses. Many have thought that these amazing creatures inspired early black metal bands to wear ridiculously long nails in there leather arm bands to ward off poser metal bands. We tend to agree.
