Not Snow Ball Either Yukimi Daifuku (Snow Viewing Rice Cake)!  Image of Ball-Like Arctic Hare Camouflaging Snow (with video)

Group of arctic hare like snow balls


 The arctic hare has long back paws and runs fast.  They can run up to 60 kilometers per hour.  In the winter, they wear a white shining coat of fur, which displays excellent mimicry effect on ice and snow.  They change their coat color from white in the spring to bluish gray, similar in color to rocks or plants in their habitat, in the winter.
