Porcuplant

.

 

Porcuplants are little gnawers that have a coat of not-so-sharp artichoke spines, or quills, that is supposed to defend them from predators, but actually makes them just taste incredible good when mixed up with tomato sauce.

 

Even though they actually have a tough nature, once the Porcuplant is boiled or steamed he can become quite tender.

 

The common Porcuplant is a herbivore. It eats leaves, twigs and green plants. It often climbs the fridge to find food and like myself, it is mostly nocturnal, but will sometimes forage for food in the day…

 

...we actually caught this little guy here sneaking in our lunch salad. Meal time, here in my house, is always full of surprises!
