group of porcupine quills


group of porcupine quills

A lovely collection of 20 porcupine quills.  Pop them in a wooden bowl or vase and enjoy their organic beauty.  Each one is a different length.  They make a fabulous decorative item.

Happily, for porcupines, their quills do indeed grow back after falling off. Shedding is a natural process of porcupine quills, just as it is with standard hair. Successor quills often start emerging in the span of a mere few days after the earlier ones come out. New quills grow pretty rapidly. Until the quills are back to their full length, they usually grow approximately 1 millimeter for each couple of days. New and old quills constantly mingle on porcupines’ bodies, which is why their lengths are rarely exactly the same.

Dimensions of a group of porcupine quills (you will receive 20 quills when you check out with a quantity of one at the checkout)

The quills are very sharp and should not be left within reach of children.  Please handle the group of porcupine quills with care.
