Arctic hares are located in extreme northern Canada and various parts of Greenland.
There, they can be found in the tundra. They make shelters in the snow to help them survive the extreme cold temperatures.
Their diet consists of buds, berries, twigs, mosses, woody plants and other types of vegetation that can be found in the tundra.
The average length of an Arctic Hare is about 20 - 26 inches. They weigh 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. They 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.
