Rabbits, Hares and Pikas (Lagomorphs)
Summertime Snowshoe Hare
This iconic North American hare in its summer brown coat is found in a vast range that covers most of Canada and stretches south into the United States in several locations. While these larger cousins of rabbits are known for having white coats in winter and brown coats in the summer, individuals in the Olympic National Park such as this one photographed in summer at Ruby Beach, Washington will retain their brown coat all throughout the winter.
