Ikki the porcupine is an animal fictional character created by Rudyard Kipling in The Second Jungle Book. In the story "How Fear Came" he has a brief cameo appearance taunting Mowgli, who tries unsuccessfully to pull his spines.
It began when the winter Rains failed almost entirely, and Ikki, the Porcupine, meeting Mowgli in a bamboo-thicket, told him that the wild yams were drying up. Now everybody knows that Ikki is ridiculously fastidious in his choice of food, and will eat nothing but the very best and ripest. So Mowgli laughed and said, "What is that to me?"
