During mating season, it is usually the female that initiates contact. The mating ritual starts with a gentle nose rubbing, involves a vicious battle, and usually ends in the male urinating on the female. This is the ultimate matchmaking test: that is how the female smells if she likes the male’s pheromones or not. The female porcupines are in the mood for making love for only about 8-12 hours a year.
