Big Feet - Snowshoe Hare by Ellen Woodbury
  Big Feet  (2015)
Subject: Snowshoe Hare
Dimensions (inches): 22 x 11 x 11
Medium: Sivec Marble and Mongolian Imperial Black Marble on Carrara Marble and Granite
Description: The snowshoe hare, aptly named for its very large hind feet, is built for winter survival. It trades in its brown summer coat for thick, pure white fur in winter. Its black ear tips do not change color and serve to confuse pursuant predators. It's black eyes act like sunglasses filtering out UV rays. Its enormous hind feet act like snowshoes in deep snow, allowing the hare to zip over the surface of the snow.

The snowshoe hare is a foundation species of the northern boreal forest–a nice way of saying every predator in the forest eats the snowshoe hare. It is one of the original fast foods. Speed and camouflage are the hare's only defenses against predators.
