Do porcupines shoot their quills? Quills are hairs modified for protection, so they are held in the skin just like hair on our head. They cannot shoot their quills, but they are still a threat to predators. If contact is made with a porcupine and its prickly quills, the barbed tips will stick easily in the skin.
