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.
