Fact of the Day: Fur Camouflage

The arctic hare has the neat ability to change fur color depending on the seasons. With it being white in winter, and with the fur changing to more of a brown in the summer. This gives it better camouflage regardless of what time of the year it is.

Our wild rabbits around here do the same thing. Their ears are always the last to change colour.

By the looks of that white hare against its brown surroundings, it seems that someone didn't get the memo.
