"Male praying mantis" is also on the list

Adding "female porcupine" to the list of Creatures I'm Glad I'm Not, after doing a bit of research for one of my children. Why? I give you this gem, found here:

Females become mature at about 18 months. A very interesting and detailed courtship takes place involving extreme vocalization, a very elaborate and somewhat comical dance, and then after the dance the male showers the female with urine.
