Animals that Camouflage: Ptarmigan Collard Lemming Arctic Hare Arctic Fox Stoat

Arctic camouflage is not instant. Take a lemming, for example. It has to grow its summer fur. And it has to wait a while as it grows. It happens because lemmings do not have living cells in their fur that change color.

In the right picture, you see a female ptarmigan who has started to grow summer feathers. Her partner (on the left) will be white a while longer to stand out on the brown ground and attract predators to himself away from her, while she sits on their eggs.
