  • Hi, I'm Pip. I'm a penguin.

  • I'm his best flamingo friend Freddy.

  • We're junior fliers at T.O.T.S.

  • Our friend Casey is a koala.

  • She knows a ton about baby animals.

  • Today she's going to tell us about...

  • ( drumroll )

  • Both: Baby porcupines!

  • Casey: Thanks, Pip and Freddy.

  • Special delivery!

  • Meet Shelly.

  • This furry little nugget is a special type of animal

  • called a prehensile tailed porcupine.

  • A baby porcupine is called a porcupette.

  • When they are born, porcupettes are covered

  • in fuzzy red fur with tiny quills underneath it.

  • The red fur helps them blend into tree bark

  • while mom might be away looking for food.

  • As they get older, these quills will grow longer

  • and turn black and white,

  • which they use for protection from predators.

  • The black and white color helps them blend in

  • to the light and shadows of the trees.

  • What cool camouflage!

  • These porcupines love to climb.

  • They are born with special tails

  • that help them grip onto tree branches

  • while looking for food.

  • Shelly was even able to start climbing

  • just a few seconds after she was born.

  • Hi, I'm Reggie, and I'm with

  • Disney's Animal Science And Environment.

  • I work with a wide variety of animals.

  • Today we are working with our prehensile tailed porcupine

  • that is six months old.

  • When kids see her, they ask us,

  • "Is it real?", because she's so cute.

  • And that nose, you know, she melts your heart.

  • Just like I care for the baby animals at T.O.T.S.,

  • a team of animal care experts provide specialized care

  • for this porcupette to help Shelly grow up

  • healthy and strong.

Hi, I'm Pip. I'm a penguin.
