“Hi guys! We’re Stella and Safari, and we’re African crested porcupines that live at Wild Florida! We’re best friends and have been at Wild Florida for four years. One of our good friends is Tortellini, an African spurred tortoise that lives with us. We hope to meet you in person one day, and don’t worry; we don’t poke you with our quills!”
