Snowshoe hares are found throughout the boreal forests of North America. They are native to Labrador and were introduced to Newfoundland in 1860. Known as rabbits in Newfoundland, these large-footed animals turn white in winter and
a dark brown in summer. The large feet help the hare to stay on top of
the snow in winter.
