Collared Pika

A collared pika (Ochotona collaris) collects a cinquefoil (Potentilla) flowering stalk for winter storage. Pikas do not hibernate, so they must gather sufficient food during the summer to survive the long, cold winter. - Photo by Michael Rudy

American pika, known in the 19th century as the "little chief hare", has a small, round, ovate body. Their body length ranges from 6–8 inches. Their hind feet range from 1–1½ inches. They usually weigh about 6 ounces. Body size can vary among populations. In populations with sexual dimorphism, males are slightly larger than females.
