Lagomys, the only living genus of the Double-toothed Rodent family Lagomyidae, with eleven species, known as Pikas or Calling Hares, and about the size of guinea-pigs. They are chiefly from the north of Asia and America, though one form, the Alpine Pika (L. alpinus), ranges into south-eastern Europe. They store herbage in and near their burrows, and the sable-hunters are said to appropriate the stores of the Alpine Pika to feed their horses.
