Canadian Wilderness

A porcupine looks like a beaver with pricks. Roughly 30,000 quills cover the whole body except for the stomach, nose, and the bottom of their feet. The porcupine has a small face, small ears, short legs, and a thick small tail. When baby porcupines are born their quills are soft, but after an hour their quills harden. They eat a variety of shrubs, bark, water plants, and everything salty. Porcupines stick close to trees. You may also find them along side the river undergrowth and maybe trees by rocky ledges. They live in dens found in rock piles, caves, fallen logs, and trees. Generally they stay close to their den, leaving only for food. Porcupine warnings come in three forms sight, sound, and smell. If an enemy appears, the porcupine turns its back and uses its body like a red flag. " Go away.", it would say. Sometimes sight and sound warnings fail the porcupine. Then the porcupine tries communicating through smell- a special odor it makes only when threatened, one whiff of of it can make your eyes water and your nose stream. Even a young porcupine is able to make it. If an enemy dares to ignore the warnings, it might get a snout or a paw full of sharp quills.

Canadian survival

Survival- a living or continuing longer than another person or thing. Here is a list you need to go camping. A first aid kit, compass, emergency candle, emergency whistle, insect repellent, maps, matches, nylon cord, plastic bags, safety pins, needle and thread, sunscreen, toilet paper, towel or small shovel, water filter, and a water jug. This is how to build a fire. First you need to collect fire wood away from your campsite. Burn only dry wood on the ground. Make sure you put the fire pit on dry soil and not around leaves or grass. Never burn plastics and make sure you burn the fire under a clear sky. What's inside a first aid kit? A first aid manual, sterile gauze pads, adhesive tape, adhesive bandages, elastic bandages, a splint, antiseptic wipes, soap, antibiotic ointment, antiseptic solution, extra prescription medication, tweezers, safety pins, flashlight and extra batteries, and a blanket. Always pack extra food and water, always bring a flare, never eat things already dead, bring a pocket knife and NEVER GO ALONE!!!!!!!

Canadian climate

Daytime summer temperatures can rise 35 degrees celciest and higher. The winters are generally cold with periods of snow. Summers are hot and dry on the prairies while winters are mild and wet on the west coast. When the temperature does drop, Canadians stay warm thanks to an infrastructure of heated house and cars. Some cities even have installed walk ways to form buildings and schools.
