Hares and Rabbits: The Moon’s Sacred Companions, Part 1 of 2

I notice that hares and rabbits differ in their physical appearance. Hares look larger and also have longer hind legs.

We snowshoe hares have comparatively smaller ears as heat travels shorter distances through our body and keeps us warmer in the colder climates we reside in!

In order to tell subtle color differences between individual males, females produce more opsins or specialized light sensitive proteins in their retinas over time. This causes the male’s plumage to become more and
