Vegetable-loving porcupine devours corn on the cob

Porcupines are vegetarians, and one in particular loves to chow down on corn.

Quilliam, a cape porcupine living at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden, was seen take quick bites out of a corn on the cob. The zoo posted video showing Quilliam devouring the vegetable, and you can also hear its little nibbles.

The porcupine, who is nicknamed “Quill,” is about eight years old and is considered to be an animal ambassador at the zoo. He is a fan – obviously – of vegetables, but also loves fruit.
