Mongolia – Pika

Pika, The Gobi Desert, Mongolia

Today, I’m showing you a cute animal that I met in the Eagle Valley (see post from 23.08).

This small mammal, with big rounded ears, is called pika. Sometimes, people call it as “whistling hare”, because it looks a bit like a rabbit or a hare (well, a bit… maybe… 😉 ), and it makes an extra funny noise – kind of whistling or calling “peee, peee”.

If you are curios, what does the call sound like – check e.g., on YouTube (I smile each time while hearing it).
