SNAPPED: A white snowshoe hare trying to stay warm in the Snyderville Basin
PARK CITY, Utah — Snowshoe hares have been called the snickers bar of the forest as they are a main food source for many different predators.
Lucky for them, they have evolved some unique tricks in order to survive. As the days get shorter, their hair will start to change until it eventually becomes all white. While snowshoes are fast, they are better served using their winter coats as camouflage to hide from predators.
