The Snowshow Hare is a beautiful creature that can be found living in the coldest parts of the world. They have a thick coat of fur that helps protect them from the elements, and they are very agile creatures that can move quickly through the snow.

The Snowshow Hare's habitat is in the forests and mountains of Scandinavia, Russia, and North America. They live in nests made out of twigs and leaves, and during the winter they often make their homes in hollow trees or under rocks.

These hares are herbivores, and their diet consists mostly of grasses, leaves, and berries. They are also known to eat bark and roots on occasion.

Snowshow Hares are typically about two feet long, with a tail that is another six inches long. They weigh between four and eight pounds. They are covered in a thick coat of white or light brown fur, which helps them blend in with their surroundings. They have large ears, and their eyes are black.

Snowshow Hares are very timid creatures, and they are known to freeze up when they sense danger. They can run up to 25 miles per hour, making them one of the fastest hares in the world.
