Also called the South African porcupine, the Cape porcupine (Hystrix africaeaustralis) is the world's largest porcupine. They are similar in appearance to, and only slightly larger than, their close relatives, the crested porcupines, and can most easily be distinguished from them by the presence of a band of short white spines along the midline of the rump.
