|The Eastern Cottontail (Sylvilagus floridanus) is a New World cottontail rabbit, a member of the family Leporidae. It is one of the most common rabbit species in North America.|
The Eastern Cottontail is a very territorial animal. It is nocturnal and is also active during early dawn and late dusk. When running it can jump from 10-15 feet which can aid in avoiding predators. When chased, it runs in a zigzag pattern so the animal chasing it will loose its scent and so the rabbit is harder to follow. It can run up to 15mph. The cottontail prefers an area where it can hide quickly but be out in the open. Forests, swamps, thickets, bushes or an open area where it can dig a burrow is optimal habitation sites for this species. Its diet includes of grasses, fruits, and vegetables in the spring and summer, and twigs, bark, dogwoods and maple trees in the winter.
