Role in the Film
Quilda is first seen during the film's first act, when Judy Hopps is attempting to arrest Nick Wilde for his pawpsicle scams. Quilda is standing with the fox and rabbit as they argue at the crosswalk.
As Quilda begins to cross the street, Nick follows in her wake, using her quills as protection from the herd of wildebeest crossing in the other direction with Judy following him.
- Quilda is the only African crested porcupine ever to be seen in the film.
- The Essential Guide gives Quilda the name "Muriel".
- In the original screenplay, Quilda's role of interviewing Lionheart belonged to a cut character named Kitty Cowlick.
- Quilda's name is a play on her species, since porcupines have quills.
