  men (porcupine)

 

Sri Lanka

Porcupines are called men in Thai. However, these photos were taken near Pinnawela in Sri Lanka and the species here is the Indian Porcupine, which is commonly found in South Asia.

 

They strongly resembles the Malayan Porcupine, but have much shorter manes (fig.). The latter species occurs in Thailand.
