    Got a Pika on your property? Then move! Climate change/glowball warming is causing some species to become endangered! OMG!!!

    I never heard of a pika before!

    What would the world be like without pikas!?!

    A tiny mammal that can't handle warm weather could become the first animal in the lower 48 states to get Endangered Species Act protection primarily because of climate change.

    The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said Wednesday that listing the American pika may be warranted because of climate change. Federal officials will now launch an in-depth review of the species and submit findings by Feb. 1, 2010.

    The pika - a furry, big-eared relative of the rabbit - dwells mostly in high, rocky mountain slopes in 10 Western states. Even brief exposure to temperatures of 78 degrees or warmer can be deadly to the animal.

    As the West warms, scientists say some pikas have tried to move upslope to find cooler refuges but have run out of room

    This is ridiculous. Pika are just another kind of rock rat. If you are freezing to death above the tree line, you can use the bedding they store to light a fire - that's their only utility. These silly little critters lived through all the previous warm periods with no trouble so I doubt they need our help now.

    They are classified as a species of rabbit,rock rabbits or coney's .They move around as the weather changes going higher up in the mountains as the temperature rises .They have been around for many thousands of years and are much like lemming in numbers.coyotes and wolves feed on them when they can catch them off guard.They are well able to take care of themselves and are prodigious breeders !

    That would make about enough meat for a burger.For a meal it would take about twenty of those little critters on a skewer roasted with some salt pork and bacon for the flavor !
