    Porcupines don't "attack", they take a defensive potition, exposing their quills to ward off and if necessary injure the offender. And no they do not shoot their quills.

    Porcupines are fairly docile creatures so they don't attack.  They protect themselves with their quills - not by shooting them but by either holding their ground balling up.

    The African porcupine rushes backwards suddenly, with its spines erected, and tries to drive them into its foe. The Canadian species, which has much shorter spines, uses its powerful tail.
