Snowshoe Hare General Information

In the wild, Snowshoe Hares are found in Alaska and North America. The name "snowshoe" is inspired from its large hind feet.

At birth, baby Snowshoe Hares have brown fur which later turns white during the winter months.

This tiny rabbit is trying to navigate through the vegetation. It's barely taller than the blades of grass. At this young age, it is roughly the size of an adult Pika and can fit in your hand. The baby bunny ears are still roundish but will eventually grow to approximately 3 inches long in adults.
