There fur changes white so that it will blend in with the snow so that it will be easy for it to hide from its predators.

A snow rabbit is commonly found in the north because it's fur changes from brown to white when it's winter.

Snowshoe hares change color with the season. They turn brown in the summer and white in the winter. The color change helps to camouflage the hare all year round. If it should snow before the rabbit turns white, the brown coat would make them stand out against the white snow.

They shed there summer coat off and grow a snow-white coat. This helps them camouflage when predator are near.

so it can blend in with the plants and snow. So in winter time it turns white so it can blend in with snow and in summer it turns a brownish color s it can blend in with plants and ground

It molts its brown fur and becomes a snow white color. It has camouflage with the snow during winter.

Wild rabbits fur color is designed for camo. A wild hare will have a color that is called Aguti in domesticated rabbits. And again a snow hare will have a white coat to blend in with the snow. Domesticated rabbits on the other hand, their fur color comes from genetics. For example you breed a black rabbit to a black rabbit you are going to get 3/4 black and 1/4 what is in their pedigree.

The darker the Willyworm the more snow there is going to be in the winter.

They become whiter in winter because they usually live in Alaska or Canada, where the snow is. The whiter color is to help them blend in with the snow.
