The pika is a small mammal with short limbs, a rotund body, rounded ears, and no external tail. Pikas are native to cold climates and can be found mostly in grassland and prairie areas in Asia, North America, and parts of Eastern Europe. China is home to several species of pika, including the rare Ili pika which lives in the Tianshan Mountains in China’s northwest Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region.
