The Arctic Hare

The Arctic hare is discovered in the northern areas of the Arctic Circle, mostly in Northern America, Greenland, Europe and the North Pole. They have thick, white fur which permits it to continue occupying the Arctic regions productively in camouflage and warmth. The Arctic hare eats buds, shoots and berries found between the snow. They are an essential element in the Arctic Circle food chain, being one of the some smaller mammals able to prosper in such an unkind environment. Arctic hare is therefore ordinary prey for bigger creatures of the Arctic tundra, such as Arctic foxes, wolves and polar bears.
They are always white in the far north where there is snow around all year. In parts of the Arctic circle that have periods, they will go from white to a blue-grey colour in the summer but is recognized to stay its white tail all year. They are lives in clusters of around 200 Arctic hare individuals. These big groups of Arctic hare will often work jointly to attain what is needed for their continued existence as the Arctic hares group together to save heat and to stay them warm.
