Eastern Cottontail Rabbit

The Eastern Cottontail Rabbit is a common critter around meadows, farms and hay fields. They are grazers, eating grass and weeds, often by the side of the road. They tend to sit still, completely mortionless so as to avoid predators. Nearly every predator out there finds them tasty. When chased, they can go nearly 20mph but they generally zigzag to avoid being caught. They breed frequently, prducing perhaps 4-5 litters of about 5 kits each time.   high-res
