Pika in Bhutan

Just a short note on this pika that I found in April 2012 at Chelela Pass, Bhutan. I believe it is the Moupin Pika (Ochotona thibetana), but I am not 100% sure.

In general, pikas are found in colder climate up in the mountains. They are related to the rabbits and hares. They look cute with rounded ears, short limbs and no external tail.
