Tracks in the snow. Hare was briefly spotted.
Snowshoe hare tracks abundant in these woods this year. Saw the hare as well as tracks, white winter coat.
Size 12 ski boot. Size 14 rabbit's foot.
Tracks from presumably a snowshoe hare leading from the woods into our lawn, and then back into the woods.
Possibly a snowshoe rabbit but not a 100% sure. As taking pictures of tracks, animal was seen running across road. Appeared to be a rabbit.
Note my foot for reference scale.
The snowshoe hare (Lepus americanus), also called the varying hare, or snowshoe rabbit, is a species of hare found in North America. It has the name "snowshoe" because of the large size of its hind feet and the marks its tail leaves. The animal's feet prevent it from sinking into the snow when it hops and walks. Its feet also have fur on the soles to protect it from freezing temperatures.
