         the snowshoe hare


The snowshoe hare is an herbivore, meaning it eats only plants.  Its real fur is brown, but turns white from the snow.  The white helps them camoflauge from predators.  They can grow in between 15 and 20 inches long and weigh up to 2.2-3.3 pounds.  It has many predators, such as lynx, owls, golden eagles, bobcats, red foxes, arctic foxes, bears, wolves, minks, weasels, and wolverines.  They eat mainly green vegetation, but in winter, it will eat bark, twigs, and , sometimes, even frozen meat.

This is the area in North America where you can find them.
