Abstract: The pika inhabiting in cold zone or in high mountains is thought to be adapted to cold as well as high-altitude environment. We have reported pika's high body temperature (39.6℃), high metabolism and poor heat loss ability such as poor panting, small ear pinnae and lack of thermal salivation. In this study, we measured the body temperature of wild pikas (Ochotona daurica) with a telemetry device in their natural burrows in Mongolia. Two pikas captured at Undur Dov were implanted with transmitters in the abdominal cavity under anesthesia, and were returned to the own habitat. The mean body temperatures of the pikas were 39.65℃ and 39.96℃ though the data were limited to a short period of less than one day. The present results in wild pikas support pika's high body temperature in our previous studies.
