The pika is a small mammal, with short limbs, rounded ears, and no external tail. Pikas are diurnal or crepuscular. They show their peak activity just before the winter season. Pikas do not hibernate, so they generally spend time during the summer collecting and storing food they will eat over the winter. Each rock-dwelling pika stores its own "haypile" of dried vegetation.
