    Default hares turning color already?

    I saw a rabbit today that had brownish ears, do you guys think because of the weather they are turning color already?

    I highly doubt it.

    No. Color change is triggered by the pineal gland which is light/photoperiod sensitive, has nothing to do with temperature.

    What are the odds that one never fully turned? I've never seen one like that, but I suppose it could happen?
