Paultons Park zookeeper reads to porcupines

A zookeeper has been reading children's books to two young porcupines, to prepare them for their first public appearance.

The porcupines, Dill and Pickle, are brothers and moved to Paultons Park, near Romsey, Hampshire, last month, ahead of the opening of a new "Little Africa" attraction.

Louise Taylor reads to the animals every day for about 20 minutes.
