Video Showing Porcupine Defending Itself From Leopard Causes Stir On Twitter; Watch

Indian forester shared a clip of porcupine protecting itself from Leopard’s attack. Internet users talk about the importance of life and its uniqueness.


Evolution has gradually made all living organisms equipped with required skin time, colour and other features to not only help its survival but also to often attack. In the same light, Indian forester Jagan Singh shared a short clip of a porcupine protecting itself from Leopard’s attack. The 25-second-clip was shared by Singh saying in the caption that all wild animals come up with one or the other kind of ‘defence mechanism’. It shows how the porcupine dominates the encounter with Leopard by unfurling its quills. Even though the Leopard tries to touch the animal, it fails due to the sharpness of the large quills.

Netizens talks about importance of life

The video shared by Jagan Singh caused a stir online as the internet users started talking about how one’s life is important to all living beings, even if it is the wild animals. Several internet users even noted the uniqueness of animals and others said that humans should not exploit any wild animals because they are ‘majestic’. One of the netizens even retweeted the video and said that it was the first time he saw the encounter of a porcupine and a leopard. 

A separate 11-second-clip shared by IFS Officer Sudha Ramen shows the porcupine, who found itself in a fix after encountering the snake, not conceding to defeat. Instead, the rodent can be seen using its quills at the right time to fight the reptile.
