 Porcupine question

Alright. I work at a wildlife sanctuary and there is a male porcupine named Taz. Well today I was in his cage, but we have a rake to keep him away cause he has stuck some keepers before. Well he never poofs up his quills and always seemed to like me. Well he tried peeing on me when i opened the door and had the rake. So is that a territorial thing? Even though he didn’t show his quills? And I looked it up and porcupines will pee on females to get them arroused. Anyone have any idea? Lol. I swear if he tried peeing on me cause he likes me that much i’ll laugh. But I can also ask my boss too tomorrow

 Porcupine question

No idea...but I’d like to know! I’ve only ever worked with a female porcupine (I’m doing a Behavioral & Enrichment Training internship at a zoo,) and she’s never tried to pee on anyone.
