    hair vs fur

    I tried to find out the difference between "hair" and "fur" and the results on the google were kind of scientific.
    Would you tell me the difference from common sense perspective?

    Use a dictionary before you google stuff.

    Fur is fine hair.

    Re: hair vs fur

    Generally speaking, people have hair and animals have fur. Now some animals have what is called "hair," like horse hair, or camel hair. But you would not say that a person has fur, unless you were doing so in a comical way.
