The oh-so-cute pika, or rock rabbit, source of the piercing “cheeep” as you hike past that alpine talus pile.  This little fella gave me one small chance to get his picture, in upper Paintbrush Canyon, Teton Mountain Range.  Pika populations are suffering in many areas because of climate change.  An animal who lives at high altitudes is similarly susceptible to shifting climates as the polar bear, who lives in high latitudes. When a set of climatic conditions wants to shift, but has nowhere to shift to, the animals & plants dependent on those conditions also have nowhere to go.
