The real Pikachu?

I think I wanna hire a Pika to prepare me for next winter. They're like, unstoppable. Yes, they should be called "Tiny barking mouse bunnies" I agree, that is a far better descript-shons.

Titts L., if that is your real name [shifty eyes] gracias for the submishe.

Awesomely cute. I love pikas. They're like bunnies, but wild :( And have tinier ears. And make that funny noise.

I think I've seen toys that make that nose. They're not so cute, though :P

Wow, my cat went crazy when they started the first long string of squebarking there!

 |  Jun 23, 2007 at 04:11 PM

haaha the first clip of the constantly barking pika... best alarm clock ever

 |  Jun 23, 2007 at 04:15 PM

can i have one? :(

 |  Jun 23, 2007 at 04:15 PM

Am I having a case of deja vu' or have we seen this before....sometime...somewhere, out there...beneath the pale moonlight....

Oh, and the PIKA are ADORABLE!! I'm glad they're not singing outside my window at night though. ;-)

 |  Jun 23, 2007 at 04:18 PM

I think the narrator was almost as cute as the pikas, he just seemed so delighted to watch them hop around.

 |  Jun 23, 2007 at 04:20 PM

Ah, God bless Sir David Attenborough.

 |  Jun 23, 2007 at 04:23 PM

Wow.. that is a seriously hard-working rodent-type thing. I'd hire it in a minute. A hundred trips a day? Wow.

 |  Jun 23, 2007 at 04:42 PM

i think the real pikachu is the jerboa. (google it)

 |  Jun 23, 2007 at 04:43 PM

Omg...I saw this the other day and thought about submitting it...right after I saw the groundhog clip. Groundhog, right? :|

 |  Jun 23, 2007 at 04:50 PM

cute.. I need one of those to shop for me

 |  Jun 23, 2007 at 04:52 PM

There's also the Kinkachou. I'm not sure of the spelling, though. I just saw one several years back at a zoo... I think Woodland Park.

Elfir, my kitty did too!

How adorable!! Must squiiiish it!

 |  Jun 23, 2007 at 05:14 PM

Yup, my cat's ears were flailing over the place with the squeak-barking. So cute.

 |  Jun 23, 2007 at 05:36 PM

OMG, you did pikas! The cutest wild animal in the world, IMHO! The ex & I had a close encounter w/one at the summit of Mt. Washburn, Yellowstone Nat'l. Park in 1990. Ex just happened to have the camera pointed at my feet when our little guy emerged right beside my hiking boot. Hmmm...time to shake down the ex for those old pics, methinks.

 |  Jun 23, 2007 at 05:38 PM

OMG!!! An akchul Pikacu in the wilds!!!!
Dis is better dan puddin' :-O

 |  Jun 23, 2007 at 05:39 PM

How cute! I think i saw these in Alaska, but they didn't make the squeeky noise. Did you notice how their ears flap when they squeak!

Oh, and Sir David kicks Sigourney Weaver's butt any day!

(referring to "Planet Earth" narrator in British vs. American versions.)

Hobbit -- i don't think it's better than puddin'. not in teho's opinion. unless we dunk him in it like donuts into coffee, that would make it better than just puddin'. all in for puddin' covered pika? say aye. AYE!!!!

 |  Jun 23, 2007 at 05:47 PM

Such overloaded cuteness!

 |  Jun 23, 2007 at 06:01 PM

once again, i feel like barfing due to the redonk cuteness.

eeeep!! too cute!

 |  Jun 23, 2007 at 06:07 PM

My fourth-grade teacher LOVED pikas! His license plates even said "PIKA." Hey, Mr. Gordon, if you're still out there... you're still one of my favorite teachers ever.

Visit here alot to checkout all the great pictures.

OMG PIKAS!!!1!! One of the great joys of my childhood trips to Rocky Mountain National Park was when we'd hike or drive to a boulder field above the treeline and I could look for pikas and marmots. Marmots are easier to spot, because they're so fat and lazy (well, industriously eating, I suppose) - it was pretty exciting to occasionally spot a pika!

 |  Jun 23, 2007 at 06:23 PM

hmmm.... it seems as if my "first" is now deleted and changed into "bleen." as if some1's pet peeve was people yelling out 'FIRST' whenever they had the first post.. hmm...... i wonder who changed it. check out the 4th comment, it got changed. i propose a strike.

 |  Jun 23, 2007 at 06:46 PM


(read above comment)

 |  Jun 23, 2007 at 06:48 PM

musicchick, we had a picture of a pika once and then in the comments someone linked to that video. So you're not going crazy, we have seen it before. But not as a post.

Also, Rosie, I totally agree with you.

 |  Jun 23, 2007 at 07:00 PM

That is just way to stinking cute!

 |  Jun 23, 2007 at 07:13 PM

That was easily the cutest thing I have ever seen.

I go explode now.

Peg of Tilling, I LOVE type geek humor! Am I the only one who got the joke?

 |  Jun 23, 2007 at 07:21 PM

Thanks warrior rabbit.... I'm glad I'm not losing it! ;-)

And Rosie? I agree with you too, but.... *sigh*

 |  Jun 23, 2007 at 07:51 PM

My kitten was very interested in the sounds they were making..!

 |  Jun 23, 2007 at 08:01 PM

Hehe, I posted this video on my Vox blog a year ago. I've watched it so many times, melting each and every one.

 |  Jun 23, 2007 at 08:22 PM

I absolutely loved the double-ear-twitch that went with each "sqwauck"!

 |  Jun 23, 2007 at 08:37 PM

All we pika fans have yet another reason to demand serious action on climate change-- because pikas will have to move up the mountains to get away from the hotter weather, and there's only so far you can move up a mountain before you run out of mountain and die out. A serious possibility. Sorry to be a downer, but go kick some senators' and congresspeople's butts about it.

 |  Jun 23, 2007 at 08:41 PM

When I watched that video, I was thinking of the little Pika saying: "Iz Makin' U Bouqets!" Also, why has no one made the Pika-chu joke yet?

 |  Jun 23, 2007 at 08:51 PM

Sigh...... I'm SO with you on that one, adifferentLaura. I've said for decades that I'm going to be David Attenborough when I grow up. Fersure our MOST snorglable host/narrator (followed closely by Jack Hannah).

 |  Jun 23, 2007 at 08:57 PM

Rosie the only way you get to keep a First in the first comment is if it is cleverly added into the coment like that is the first pikachu I ever saw.
Not if you yell it like a war whoop! That being said it makes it even more challenging to get that first in there and to be first.
And I have to say I agree with Theos policy. IT makes it infinately more exciting and challenging to get that first post. Course that is just me. But also makes more fun reading than about five posts of people yelling First! First! First!

 |  Jun 23, 2007 at 08:59 PM

I can't help it. I just sit transfixed with this show. That is the series that just came out over here 'cept with Sigourney Weaver narrating? I have no prob with her - I just like Sir David ever so much better!

 |  Jun 23, 2007 at 09:08 PM

Re typography geek humor:

1) There is a print store in my town that had two cats: (the late) WYSIWYG and Goudy.

b) In my teens, I read a big in a humor magazine about a Roman woman who was stolen by barbarians. When she was rescued, her heroes said "Sir, I believe she has a Roman-type face." "True. 'Tis neither Gothic nor bold."

There is something really refreshing and heartwarming about watching little fluffy seemingly-helpless creatures bound along with bright pretty flowers in their mouths..! The hills are alive with the sound of Music!

...and, for an entire novel imbued with typography humor, try "The Truth," by Terry Pratchett. For example, one character is named Boddony, and another Goodmountain (as in Gutenberg).
