Ultimate One-Night Stand: The Female North American Porcupine

And you thought compromise was tough?

‘The female North American porcupine breaks from a busy life of foraging to offer mating once a¬†year, for just 12-18 hours. Even then, she doesn’t always consummate. Males are often met with whining, clawing, biting, or whips from her spiny tail. Sometimes she’ll avoid contact altogether by tottering away screaming.’
