"If you know how to hunt, it is not the porcupine you go after"

The porcupine is viewed as more powerful than the leopard; an ideal warrior as it has the ability to shoot it's spines at the enemy and then quickly generate new quills to continue battle.

Porcupine Akan proverb:
If you kill a thousand, a thousand will come!


 c. 1970s
