1. (Common Noun-Common) The most prominent feature of a porcupine’s body is its spikes. Each animal has over 30,000 spikes. These needle style stilettos are loosely attached to the Porcupine’s skin so that they are easily detached in a defensive confrontation. When threatened, the Porcupine will raise and separate its spikes and curl up in a ball. When attacked, it will swing its spiky tail at the aggressor. Any creature that gets hit with the tail or brushes against its body will be instantly impaled with a bunch of barbed spikes. Normal, healthy adult animals know enough to avoid dueling with a porcupine because of its spikes. কেঁটেলা পহুৰ গাত বাহিৰ ফালে জোং জোং কৈ থকা কাঁইট।
English: porcupine spike,
