||Greenland and arctic regions
The Arctic Hare resides in some
of the coldest places on earth including the northern
tip of Canada, Alaska and Greenland.
The Arctic Hare generally eats plant life and
especially enjoys berries. If it comes across
a small animal which has been caught in a hunters'
trap it will certainly eat it.
Most of the area that Arctic Hares inhabit contains
snow all year round. In these areas the hare remains
a bright white color all the time. Further south
the Arctic Hare will obtain a grey tinge in its
coat during the summer months to help it blend
into its surroundings. The wide paws of the Artic
Hare help it stay on top of the snow as it moves.
This and its thick coat are two of the most important
adaptations that allow it to survive these conditions.
