Crested Porcupine, Hystrix cristata
The porcupine is peaceful and full of confidence in his world of experience. Within the animal energies of the root chakra, the porcupine acts as a playful force that can unfold because there is no fear. Because the ability to defend oneself always carries it with it. The spines are his survival tool. They resemble long horny hair, which are provided with very small barbs. They can easily penetrate any enemy. However, it is difficult to remove them again, so there is a high probability that the wound will become inflamed.
The porcupine offers itself as a helping force animal in social environments such as kindergartens and school care, where trust and non-violent self-defense are to be learned.
