Sometimes it seems like when winter hits we either have the option of lightweight coverage with freedom of movement but minimal warmth, or bulky layers that keep us toasty but hinder our range of motion.

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.
