how far can a porcupine throw its quills?

    Contrary to what many believe, porcupines can’t actually shoot their quills out.  The quills are controlled by muscles that release when the quills come into contact with another body.  The quills are barbed so they will stick into you and stay there, but they can’t actually throw their quills any distance.
