American Pika

Animals Home > Mammals
The American Pika can be found in mountainous regions of Western North America.


Latin Name: Ochotona princeps  
Distribution: Western North America  
The American Pika has been thrust into the debate over global warming because it is very sensitive to rising temperatures. Proponents of the global warming theory say that the movement of the American Pika higher into the cooler areas of the mountains show that the temperature is rising.
