Mammalian species available in the markets


Hystrix brachyura - Chinese porcupine

 

This species appears very similar to the African crested porcupine except for its more diminutive size and fewer quills over the rear.  There were only a handful of this species in the markets.


 

The animal below was lying in the aisleway of the Guangzhou Chao Tou market.
