Biology class: Snowshoe hare’s adaptation to the environment(100%)

The snowshoe hare is a rabbit animal.

First, it uses camouflage to survive in its environment. When the daylight becomes shorter, its fur turns from brown to white. Because land is often covered with snow in the winter, the white color could be like snow, and it’s harder for predators to find it.

Another special thing is that snowshoe hares don’t need to keep fat or store food during the winter, because food is easily available and reachable.

Although I probably should mention that technically a hare is not exactly the same as a rabbit, even though it is very similar the primary difference is that a rabbit’s young are born blind and without fur, while a hare’s babies are born with a full coat and able to see.

Now, another advantage related to this is that unlike many animals in winter, snowshoe hares can stay lean and light weight(保持苗条和体重轻).
