Rico The Porcupine Loves To Work Out And Run Laps On His Treadmill

It’s that time of year where we all try to scramble to get back into shape for summer, even though it’s already here!

And no stranger to wanting to get a summer bod is one very cute, large-nosed Brazilian porcupine named Rico.

This adorably large rodent loves to workout on an exercise wheel. Luckily for us, the staff at the Cincinnati Zoo are very good at capturing a lot of his daily activities on camera in order for the internet to keep up with Rico’s best life.

Watching Rico work out on a spinning wheel is definitely the cutest thing to watch!

But that’s not all that Rico does all day. Besides enjoying his physical fitness routine on an exercise wheel, there are other Instagram reels and pictures of Rico sometimes helping out with cleaning chores. Of course, one of his favorite past times is to enjoy some yummy snacks which are usually followed by a nap.
