bestiary: arctic hare

so finally (at least to me), the difference between hares and rabbits? hares are bigger. longer ears. taller hind legs. i find it interesting that they can be loners but you can also find them in groups of thousands. i'd love to see that. thousands of arctic hares! i'd probably miss them though. it'd probably be winter and i'd probably not seem them camouflaged in the tundra. also, i wouldn't be out in the dead of winter in a patch tundra. i kind of like that during mating season, they pair off and do their own thing. they establish their own territory away from others. and crazier still, they can run up to sixty kilometres an hour! what?! lepus arcticus in moleskine.
