Agility. Speed. Velocity. (2016)

Agility - the ability to change the body's position efficiently. Speed - how fast an object is moving. Velocity - the rate at which an object changes its position. The Snowshoe Hare (Lepus americanus) is a rabbit-sized mammal that is named for its hind feet, which are large and well adapted for travelling across snowy ground. The fur of the Snowshoe Hare is extremely thick and has one of the highest insulation values of all mammals. In winter, hares undergo shedding which transforms the hare's rusty brown summer coat into one that is pure white apart from the black-tipped ears and the feet, which remain grey.
