Dartmouth is home to two new African Crested Porcupines. The twins have just been born at Woodlands Family Theme Park.
The babies, known as 'porcupettes', arrived on Valentines Day and are being well looked after by Mother Afryea and Father Koho.
The new arrivals, who are yet to be named, join their brother and sister Tandi aged 2 and Afia aged 1.
The Head Keeper at the Woodlands Zoo-Farm say the duo are settling in well.
- The African Crested Porcupine is the largest rodent in Africa.
- “Porcupine" comes from the Latin ‘porcus’ for pig and ‘spina’ for spine.
- Their wild diet consists of bark, roots and some fruit but their favourite treat is sweetcorn.
Guests can visit the porcupine family at Woodlands Zoo-Farm.
