Met a very playful pika at Lake O'Hara
Pikas are extremely shy animals. Luckily, we met the world's most playful pika while hiking in the Lake O'Hara area.
This cute creature saw me and my friend from about 5 meters away while we were hiking to Lake McArthur. The pika picked up a strip of grass and ran to us. Then, he put down the grass and started to sniff on our hiking boots. Unlike most of the pikas, this little guy had no fear at all. My friend and I were so careful and tried not to scare this little guy away. The next 10 minutes were the most precious time I ever had on this hiking trip.
The little curious pika walked around us as he was analyzing what kind of creatures we were. He walked to my friend's back and started doing a stretch and even tried to untie the shoelace. I had never seen a pika is so close to humans. This one, for sure, is very unique.
