An adult American Pika resting on her throne.
The American pika is frequently seen hunched up on boulders or talus of nearly the same colour as its fur. On occasion the pika will climb on other outcroppings or protrusions such as a branch or stick. A single sticking out from the talus cliff gives his strong pika a better view of it's terratory.
They have sharp curved claws that help them climb and grip rock and wood. Excellent hearing and vision keep them very aware of danger in their surroundings.
