Strange beasts and where to find them

An undoubted highlight of the trip came while returning to the campsite late at night in a taxi. Suddenly a strange shape appeared in the headlights – a lumbering family of porcupines, surprisingly big, ambling across the road at night, shining brightly in the headlights before slinking off again into the night.

I was amazed. It was such an unexpected encounter with this strange creature – apparently still fairly common in Hong Kong but rarely seen as it forages at night. One specimen was photographed last year outside the Bank of China building in Admiralty.
