Even after taking quills to the face, this lady lion wants a porcupine for lunch

Lions are some of the deadliest creatures on Earth, but would you count spiny porcupines on that list? For a lion, the quill animals are a formidable foe, because the porcupines are able to shove their quills in places that cause great harm to the lion, like their mouth or throat. That pain, combined with the inability for the lion to extract the quill on its own could ultimately prove deadly for a cat too curious to walk away from the sharp-backed beast.
