The Common Porcupine (Erethizon dorsatum) is the only native North American mammal with antibiotics in its skin. Those antibiotics prevent infection when a porcupine falls out of a tree and is stuck with its own quills upon hitting the ground. Porcupines fall out of trees fairly often because they are highly tempted by the tender buds and twigs at the ends of the branches. via http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/North_American_Porcupine   Photo by joelsartore #Porcupine #joelsartore #wikipedia
