  1. I dreamt of a baby porcupine having to be a reward from our leader that is going to be given to the lucky one, and it was given to me. The baby porcupine looks like a mole rat because it only has very tiny spikes. Its skin is showing. It is hugging my lower leg as if it really likes me. It is a little painful because of the tiny spikes but it is bearable. Vague dream hope i can find some answers.
