The Arctic Hare is located in extreme northern Canada and various
parts of Greenland.
The Arctic Hare's diet consists of buds, berries, twigs, mosses, woody
plants and other types of vegetation that can be found in the tundra.
Arctic Hares can be found in various tundra areas of Greenland and
northern Canada. They will sometimes forage shelters in the snow to
help them survive the extremely cold temperatures of the tundra.
The average length of an Arctic Hare is about 20 - 26 inches. Their
weight will usually be between 8 and 14 pounds. Arctic Hares have an
all white coat in the winter, and in the summer the coat may change to
a blue-gray or gray-brown coat. Arctic Hares have large hind feet that
enable them to move very quickly across the snow. They also have
claws that help them to dig through the snow when looking for mosses
or other vegetation to eat.
Arctic Hares will mate in early spring and the female will give birth to a
litter usually in June or early July.
