Animal of the day – 03/24/2015 – The Ili Pika

ili_pika

The animal of the day is the Ili Pika. (Did you know: Daaammmnnn son, calm down. You’re killing em’ with cuteness!

These guys (and gals) are relatives of the Rabbit family. Like some rabbits, they eat their poop (not so cute anymore huh), which are soft green pellets to gain extra nutrition. And, let’s make them less cute once more; they are known to store dead birds in their burrows during winter to eat. But I thought they were herbivores!?

I swear Pikachu must have gotten his name from these guys…
