Snowshoe Hare

The Snowshoe Hare (Lepus americanus), so named because of the large size of its feet which prevents it from sinking into the snow, is a common type of hare in North America.

For camouflage, its fur turns white during the winter and brown during the summer. The Snowshoe Hare is also distinguishable by the black tufts of fur on the edge of its ears.
