    American Pikas- how cute! For your best chance to see pikas in a national park, take a hike on a mountain trail that crosses some scree fields in western parks like Crater Lake in Oregon, Rocky Mountain in Colorado, Grand Teton in Wyoming, and Lassen Volcanic in California.

    The silver fox is a melanistic form of red fox. Melanism is when the animal's coloring is much darker than normal. Interestingly, fox squirrels, who have brownish body fur and reddish tummy fur also have a melanistic form that resembles this. I had a "black" fox squirrel that I hand raised. He lived to be 12 years old, a full ten years longer than he would have in the wild.
