Porcupines Mating

It’s doubtful that there is a female human that would want to change places with a female porcupine.  She (female porcupine) may only copulate once a year.  When that momentous occasion occurs, she is sprayed by her mate with urine from head to toe as part of the mating process.  And finally, she spends 11 months a year, every year, either pregnant or lactating.
