posted this on facebook:
While hunting yesterday, a friend saw two porcupines mating. 
He said they were nowhere near as careful as one might think.

somethings just gotta be imagined!

Wow... now THAT is special! Last spring I saw snapping turtles mating. It was slow and ancient with a very strange soundtrack and lots of difficult looking maneuvering to get into position. Its a wonder they're still on the planet after all these eons as I really couldn't help but think it seemed like a LOT of trouble to go through!

I'm sitting with porcupine mating, that really IS something to imagine!!

too funny, but one Spring day a couple of years ago i was hunting for asparagus in long grass and saw 2 tiger snakes mating, not far from where i stood! they were very beautiful as they coiled around each other while moving forward and were not at all interested in me - thankfully.
