A “Prickly” New Friend Joins Us at SeaQuest: The Crested Porcupine

Pokey, the Crested Porcupine:

With quills nearly a foot long, the Crested Porcupine is the world’s largest and (possibly) the scariest porcupine! Even though they look tough, we know what softies they really are. Come see for yourself and meet Pokey, the crested porcupine at SeaQuest Layton, Utah. 

We are so excited to add Pokey to the SeaQuest family! To book an interactive session with Pokey, use the calendar here.
