Meet the Porcupines
Our 'Meet the Porcupines' offers you the chance to get up close to the only two prehensile-tailed porcupines in the UK, making your day at the HCC truly memorable! Scroll down for more details!
We do ask that if you wish to book an animal experience, that you purchase and book well in advance (4 weeks advisable) to avoid disappointment. Our experiences, encounters and tours are incredibly popular (and for good reason too!).
