I love the pika for so many reasons, but one being that they're so darn adorable when they're carrying bouquets of flowers and grasses to their personal haystack stash that they accumulate over the summer months, to sustain them throughout the long winter months... they live in the alpine, and actually don't hibernate. They just eat through their haystack from the previous season.

A man invents. A parasite says, 'Watch out, or you might tread on the toes of God... '
