Description

This is the local name of the mountain hare (Lepus timidus). This is also an arctic-alpine relict. Whereas the black grouse spends a large part of its winter in a snow igloo, the mountain hare stays active every night. It seeks out its meagre pittance on snow-cleared areas (often grasses) or eats the bark of certain trees (hardwood species). Its North American cousin is called the snowshœ hare (Lepus americanus); snowshœs + snow, this must remind you of something?
