Re: Not a rodent

I wasn't sure at first, since in this picture I couldn't see the striped tail that I've seen on other ones.

And she looks friendly!

She is definitely giving you the once-over though! Cute photo!

Most of the pikas ran off when they spotted us, but this one was a little bit more brave. Maybe someone fed her in the past.
