Our beloved Penelopea is a North American porcupine who has played many roles in her short life. After being cast off from a television show she was soon cast as an ambassador at a zoo. When the zoo found they could not provide the necessary enclosures to house Penelopea Wild Wonders was contacted and we simply couldn’t let this starlet miss her chance to continue as the famed “creature-teacher” she was becoming. We took her in at the young age of six months and introduced her to millions of adoring fans. She was a star from day one!
Penelopea has a sweet face and temperament and is one of the newest teachers in our Big Back Yard Wildlife Education Programs, making her porcupine species proud. Because she’s such an active girl Penelopea was moved into a new enclosure this year with low branches and decking to accommodate her lack of climbing ability.
