The African brush-tailed porcupine (Atherurus africanus) is quite unique because of its rat-like appearance. It spends most of its days hidden in caves, crevices, or fallen trees. It prefers naturally occuring caves and do not usually burrow out its own and can be found in forests, river forests, and island forests, at elevations of up to 7400 ft.
