Pika

Pikas look a bit like rabbits but are smaller and have shorter ears. They can't hop like rabbits because their legs do not have enough power. Their fur can vary from gray, brown, or red.

All About Pikas!

When you hear the name Pika, you would probably think of a deer or another name for a rabbit but to me, I think Pikas are much cuter. Pikas are fuzzy creatures that live in the mountains.They are very small so you might excuse them for a chipmunk or something, but they are much different. They have long tails but most of their tail is inside their fur.

They can also be called a cony, hay-maker, mouse hare,piping hare, rock rabbit, rocky mountain pika or the whistling hare.

Say What?!?!

This cute fuzzy animal is endangeredThere are less than 1,000 left in the world.

Fun Facts!!!

Pikas have the longest tail of any lagomorph.

The first Pika was spotted in China by a girl named Tian Shan in 1983!
