OK - did anyone know this was a porcupine?
Here's the rest of my favourites from the wonderful Alfred Denny Museum - right under our noses here in Sheffield but not open to the public before.
It was specially open on Saturday for the Festival of the Mind and might well have more open days - keep an eye on the museum website. It was quite amazing . . .
Big prizes (ha ha) for whoever identifies the most species in the comments box below!
all pictures taken without flash so as not to rattle the skellies!
