Used to be my favorite animal when I was little, and still an object of fascination. This shot must have been taken with a huge lens to be so close. Tomorrow’s class lesson, Pika distribution in the mountain ranges of the continental US and the research being done therein on genetic drift. Since the last ice age, Pika’s have become progessively more isolated in mountain regions, as metabolically they can’t live below 8 or 9k. Ergo, a unique research opportunity.

M also wants to trap one and keep it in the fridge.


  1. Ha!!!The above comment about Pika Love- that was Me- M. But Davey forgot to log out- so now it looks like he wants a Pet Pika too… which we all know he does… but that’s a whole other matter.
