Doesn’t get any cuterPosted: August 29, 2012

You can tell that this is a young pika by it’s smooth and babyish looking fur, compared to the rougher looking coats of the adults. It is also about half the size of a full grown pika which is pretty small when you think that adults are only seven inches (18 cm) long and about three inches (eight cm) high.
Brian Keating talked about Pikas in the Purcell Mountains and Parks Canada’s study on these little critters. Listen to CBC’s Homestretch . You can also watch the video http://www.friendsofkootenay.ca/blog/doesn%E2%80%99t-get-any-cuter to hear the Pika’s call.
