American Pika

Set of dimensioned side elevation drawings of the American Pika

The American Pika (Ochotona princeps) has a small, round body, rounded ears, short legs, and no tail. They are a species of pika that generally lives in the western Northern America typically in the boulder fields or at above the tree line. The American Pika is herbivorous and their diet includes grasses, sedges, thistles, and fireweed.

Pikas can meet their water demands from their food alone, but they do drink water if it is available. Pikas do not hibernate, are diurnal, and typically breed twice a year.

American Pikas have a shoulder height of 4.25”-4.75” (10.8-12 cm), body length between 6”-9” (15-23 cm), and an overall weight in the range of .25-.45 lb (125-200 g). The ears of an American Pika are 1.5”-2” (3.8-5 cm) in length. The typical lifespan of an American Pika is 3-4 years in the wild and up to 7 years when raised in captivity.

Lagomorphs are small to medium sized mammals that resemble rodents, which are their closest relatives. Lagomorphs have short tales and flaps of skin that meet behind their incisor to allow gnawing with the mouth cavity closed. All Lagomorphs are herbivores and feed on grasses and small plants.
