Before we draw your attention to the value of the porcupine bezoar, we must first get to know the porcupine that is rare.

Porcupines are animals covered with spikes.  These mammals’ habitat is the jungle.  A porcupine has strong survival instincts and heals quickly whenever it is sick.  This is related to its diet.  Herbivores by nature, its favourite food are bitter-tasting plants’ roots and branch.  Since most bitter-tasting plants are sources of medicinal herbs, procupine has an immune system that is strong against toxins and poisons.  When it is injured or sick, it will go seeking for a type of herb.  This herb, when digested, produces a type of chemical that fights and kills toxins in the porcupine’s body, enabling it to heal quickly.  But the left over chemicals in its body would slowly gather and form a type of stone-like substance, also known as Porcupine Bezoar.
