Eastern Cottontail

Sylvilagus floridanus


Rabbit, white in color, may be albino.


Found just off of the zoo grounds.


I am almost positive this is an albino Eastern Cottontail, but I'm not entirely sure. I apologize for the blurry photo.

Interesting find.
It is possible that this could be an albino or leucistic Eastern Cottontail.
It is also possible that this is a domestic rabbit that has either been released or is part of a feral population. Domestic rabbits come in a pretty big range of sizes and shapes. It's hard to tell from your photo either way.
