Camouflaged and speedy
Snowshoe hares are common in many Yellowstone habitats. They are known for their large snowshoe feet and their changing camouflage–brown in the summer and white in the winter. Hares eat plants and prefer to hide in forest underbrush.
In real life, hares are very fast and agile, making them hard to catch. A hare would only provide a wolf with a light snack for a lot of work, so are not a main food source for wolves. However, lynx, bobcats, coyotes, foxes, weasels, some hawks, and great horned owls also hunt hares. Good thing hares have lots and lots of babies!
