How to list the files using less pager in colored format?

When I do a ls -AFG I get colored displayed ( in FreeBSD) in ls --color=always ( in Linux).
But since I want the listing to be more interactive, I use pagers like more or less.
I have observed that while using the pagers esp less.
The Colored listing of files is not obtained.
