Caption: Arctic hare. Arctic hare (Lepus timidus) on snow. The Arctic hare lives in the Arctic tundra and mountains of northern Europe, Asia and North America. Most Arctic hares develop this white colouration in the autumn as camouflage in the snow. However hares in the northernmost parts of their range may keep their white fur all year round. Arctic hares are typically solitary, living alone in small burrows in their territories. They feed on what vegetation they can find, in winter even consuming tree bark. Photographed on Ellesmere Island, Canada.
