     The snowshoe hare is multi-cellular with cells that have no cell walls made of cellulose. It is in the phylum Chordata because of its backbone, and is a mammal because it is endothermic and has mammary glands. The word lagomorphs means small hare-like so it is appropriate for this to be its order and the hare is in the family Leporidae which includes both rabbits and hares. The genus Lepus is characterized by hares having long legs and large ears, one of the closest relatives to the snowshoe hare is the jackrabbit.
