Northern pika has a coat with fine long hairs that vary in color in different seasons. They shed their coat twice a year; during the summer, it is reddish-brown and greyish-brown in the winter. The underside is reddish-white. They have rounded ears and short legs with fur on the underside of their feet.
They gather food during foraging and bring it back to their eating point near their burrow entrance. They could dash into their burrow if threatened during feeding; what a cautious animal! They also store hay piles before the winter by collecting grasses and placed at exposed locations to be cured by the sun.
