CINCINNATI, Ohio (WKRC) Rico, the Brazilian porcupine, celebrated his 6th birthday at the Cincinnati Zoo on Saturday.

The Zoo threw him a picnic with some of his favorite snacks and friends.

Brazilian porcupines spend most of their time in tree canopies.

They are expert climbers, who use their large curved claws, bare soles, and a prehensile tail to grip the branches.
