Hi there. Whenever you spot something that's FROM an animal (such as feces, tracks, a web, a nest, etc.), it can go in the category for that animal. I've gone ahead and have moved this to Mammals for you. Also, since this is a porcupine quill, it does not belong in the Marine Mammals of the World mission. Please consider the "Signs of Wildlife" mission for this type of spotting:
