It was a dark and stormy night, and though your den had a roaring fire, and a glass of scotch was more than enticing, your bike gave you a longing gaze when you pulled into the garage, and you knew in that moment that you couldn't leave it hanging in a gloomy corner among camping gear, and lawn care equipment while you indulgently sipped away in your leather armchair.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
