I read a fact about how all porcupines float under a Snapple cap, and I've been scouring the internet for an explanation. Can someone help? It's frustrating me. I wanna find a porcupine and put him in my bathtub to see if he floats. LOL

Yeah... their quills are hollow.

So yeah... they float, due to the air trapped inside of those quills.

What does that mean? Float under a Snapple cap?

no, it was written under a Snapple cap, I'm guessing.

Damn those thought-provoking Snapple caps! Now I also want to float a porcupine... I think it would be hilarious to watch.

Wouldn't the quill part be on top, rendering the part with the head on the bottom, and underwater? Which means they would still drown?
Unless of course, something can float under something, in which case I would think a porcupine would be the otherworldly creature for the phenomenon of floating under a Snapple cap. I ought to try that.

*thinks* Technically people float... ... ... ... specifically dead/drowned people...

And it didn't say that floating was a survival mechanism... just that they do it.

Platypuses have a venomous spur on their hind legs (only the males) and the poison can in some cases, knock out a grown man.

I'm confused as to why everyone is so amazed that porcupines could float.....

Was there ever reason to believe that they couldn't?

For that matter, is there really an animal that can't float?

Chimpanzees have virtually no fat in their entire body, and are very very fearful of water because they cannot float.

How do they get hydration then? Perhaps they're afraid of bodies of water? Ponds? Rivers?

Sometimes I like to screw around with my chimps, I hold them underwater and I pull them out just before they drown. It's just so darn entertaining. They do sink like rocks though.

See... whenever I mess with my Chimps, I just make them wear silly hats, and then cheat at poker when playing with them. They go crazy and eat the cards in frustration.
