An 11 year old porcupine named Kemosabe who lives at Animal Wonders in Montana sampled a wide variety of sweet fruits to not only determine whether or not he liked them, but to see if he is able to eat them.
Kemosabe has had dental problems throughout his whole life, and his advanced age led to further removal, leaving him with only one remaining tooth. Unfortunately, the removal led to a stubborn mouth infection that was very difficult to treat.
Kemosabe fruit experiment is a success! What does he like best? In this episode, Jessi learns which fruit Kemo won’t eat and which one he might like as much as bananas!
