Ochotonidae Ochotona

It’s True!

  • Although mouse-like in appearance, pikas are not rodents. They are lagomorphs, like rabbits and hares.
  • The tiny pika is extremely heat sensitive; it can die if exposed to heat above 80° F for more than a few hours.
  • Pikas build “haystacks” of plant material that act to mark territory boundaries and serve as their winter store of food.
  • Researchers study pikas as an “indicator species,” whose survival is threatened by increasing temperatures and climate change.
