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.

“The meanest and most contemptible person whom we behold is the offspring of heaven, one of the children of the Most High; and, however unworthily he may behave, so long as God hath not passed on him a final sentence, He will have us acknowledge him as one of His; and, as such, to embrace him with a sincere and cordial affection.”
–Henry Scougal, The Life of God in the Soul of Man
