American pikas all belong to the subgenus pika, which occurs also in Eurasia.
In slide rock and in bouldery moraines up as high as thirteen thousand feet, one finds the pika, or cony.
The pikas worked a relay system and the weasel abandoned the trail when the fourth pika became the object of the chase.
And that is how Little Chief the pika learned to make hay while the sun shone in the days of plenty.
On the wildest and most desolate peaks and rock piles is found the cony or pika or "rock rabbit" as it is variously called.
rabbit-like animal of Siberia and North America, 1827, from Tunguse piika.
