In their own world, porcupines need to huddle together for warmth – too close and they hurt each other, even kill each other, with thei... Read more

I've managed to get really close to them and I can't help work out which is male and which one is female. After all one white du... Read more

    12/15/2014 7:31:54 AM, by FEEDTHEHUNGER

    Life has been compared to a “journey” a lot, so much so that the word journey sometimes makes me wince. There are words in our world that have been so over used that they no longer retain their original magic to convey important information. Journey is one of those words for me. Nevertheless,...
