The daily routine of finding food, digging it out of the snow and feeding goes on throughout the winter days of 24-hour darkness. With a good sense of smell and good night vision, Arctic hares (Lepus arcticus) have no trouble feeding in the low light of winter. The colour of this video was enhanced in order to improve its visibility.
