Porcupines Give You 30,000 Reasons to Back Off + Born in the Rockies: First Steps

Sponsored by:
National Wildlife Federation
Born in the Rockies: First Steps: In episode one we introduce the vast diversity of the Rockies through the eyes of our animal families. From early spring to late summer we follow our new mothers through the early days of raising a family. Directed by Joe Pontecorvo. Producers: Sabine Holzer. A production of Pontecorvo Productions and the WNET Group in co-production with Terra Mater Factual Studios in association with PBS and CPB.

Porcupines Give You 30,000 Reasons to Back Off: Porcupines may be adorable, but their quills are razor-sharp, designed to impale, and are next to impossible to remove. But it's not all bad news. Researchers are designing new surgical staples that mimic the quill's shape to better close wounds and speed up healing. Directed by Sevda Eris. Produced by Josh Cassidy.

Both films sponsored by the National Wildlife Federation.
Duration: 56 min
