Coats and Camouflage

 

 

We wear jerseys and thick coats in cold weather, and light clothes in the Summer.

 

For the same reason bears, arctic foxes and arctic hares, and musk oxen, which all live in a cold climate, grow thick woolly coats, and animals which live where it is hot  have short smooth coats.

 

Some, like the elephant, hippo and rhino have little or no hair growing on their thick skins.

 

Between these extremes are the animals which, more like ourselves, have thick coats for the winter and shed them in the spring.

 

Ponies that live out are sleek in summer and shaggy in the winter.
