Adopt a Snowshoe Hare

Snowshoe hares make their home in dense coniferous forests. Within the United States, most of the coniferous forests are found on mountaintops, such as the Rockies, or near the Canadian border. Snowshoe hares can be seen foraging among the brush. As global warming heats up northern latitudes, the hare’s snowy habitat is likely to retreat northward, further constricting the animals range. Warming also may cause snow to melt, then freeze, crusting the surface and allowing some predators to hunt for the hares more efficiently. Snowshoe hares have an interesting adaptation that helps protect them against predators. Depending on the season, their fur can be a different color. During the winter, snowshoe hares are white which helps them blend in with the snow. In spring and summer the snowshoe hare turns a reddish-brown. This color helps them camouflage with dirt and rocks. Snowshoe hares are nocturnal, so look for them at dawn or dusk. Adopt a snowshoe hare today!
