Snowshoe hares are small mammals that look like rabbits. They live in the colder parts of North America. They have large feet that help them walk on top of the snow. Snowshoe hares are white in the winter. In the summer their coat changes color. Snowshoe hares slowly become brown in the spring.
Many people decorate for winter holidays with poinsettias, a bright red plant. People love their bright red color. The plant's flowers are not the red leaves.

The ancient Aztecs used the famous leaves for dye.
