Porcupines may be just up there with the slow loris in the adorable department. 

Don't believe us? Then check out Kemosabe as he munches away on a banana in his tree fort in a nature reserve in the American state of Montana.

The prehensile-tailed porcupine (a species native to South and Central America) makes a distinctive baby-like sound as he snacks, which is unique to the p-tailed variety of porcs. 

This particular group of porcupines are brilliant climbers, but are slow-moving on the ground and curl up into a ball when threatened. They can live up to 27 years.

Now excuse us while we watch this video for the fifth time.

It calms us.
