Arctic Hares

One of the most unique features of the Arctic Hare is its coat which molts twice a year, with its summer coat brown to match the shrubby plants and rocks and its winter coat white to camouflage in the snow and ice. This species of hare can be found in hillsides and rocky plateaus, of Northern Canada and Greenland. In this category, there are questions relating to the Arctic Hare’s structure, occurrence, adaptation, etc.

How do you remove rabbits from you lawn without hurting them?

Step 1: First you will need a dog that chases rabbits. Attach the dog to a lead and follow it as it chases the rabbit down the rabbit hole.

Now that you have established where the rabbit hole is keep this in mind for later.

Step 2: Take a bag of carrots (approx 8 carrots) and slice leangth ways into quatars.

Now go back to the rabbit hole with the carrots and start stabbing carrots into the ground every 3 or 4 feet in a line towards the fence. Outside the fence leave more carrots.

Step 3: Watch the Bait, as the rabbits leave the hole towards the pile of carrots outside the property sneak up with a spade and fill the rabbit hole with dirt.

Step 4: Step 4 is a bit tricky but by far the most important step. You will need to follow the dog around and catch some of his urine in a cup. Once you have the dogs urine poor this over the dirt on the rabbit hole. This will discourage the rabbits from coming back. Human urine will also work but the dogs urine will be much more effective :)

What do you call a baby hare?

A baby hare that is 1 year old or younger is called a leveret (leverets for plural).

More Answers

A hare is a type of rabbit. So like a baby rabbit, it would be called a kitten (or kit). I know this sounds weird, but it's true.

Kitten (or kit) is the names for rabbit infants, not hare infants.

Hares are not a type of rabbits. Hares and rabbits are both leporids (members of the Leporidae family), so they are related, but they are distinct animals.

What are the adaptations of a snowshoe hare?

The snowshoe hare has a number of adaptations that enable it to survive in its environment.

Also known as the snowshoe rabbit, its hind feet are large and covered in thick hair that prevent it from sinking into the snow.

The colour of its coat changes with the seasons. During the warmer seasons, its fur is brown in colour, to better blend in with its environment and help keep it hidden from predators. In winter, once it starts snowing, the coat turns white.

The snowshoe hare also changes its diet with the different seasons. In summer it will feed on ferns, leaves and grass, while in winter it will feed on tree bark and twigs.

What does an arctic hare eat?

The arctic hare (Lepus arcticus), or polar rabbit, subsists upon crowberries, grasses, mosses, lichens, seaweed, willow twigs, and the bark, leaves, and stems of woody plants. When early summer arrives, purple mountain saxifrage is a favorite. Four subspecies of the arctic hare are recognized.
Sometimes the hare will eat meat in the winter. In the winter the arctic hare also feeds on bare twigs and vegetables just under the snow. They also feed on grass, bugs, twigs, and leaves in the summer. In the winter it will also eat spruce twigs, bark, needles, and buds of hard wood. They will also feed on willow and dwarf arctic plants.
Animals in the same family tend to eat similar food, so a hare would eat the same stuff as a wild English countryside rabbit, which would be grass, moss, heather and any wild plant things.
