This photo was taken at the Hogle Zoo in Utah.

The desert cottontail (Sylvilagus audubonii), also known as Audubon's cottontail, is a New World cottontail rabbit, and a member of the family Leporidae. Cottontails give birth to their kits in burrows vacated by other mammals. Like all cottontail rabbits, the desert cottontail has a greyish-brown, rounded tail with a broad white edge and white underside, which is visible as it runs away. It also has white fur on the belly. Order: Lagomorpha > Family: Leporidae > Genus: Sylvilagus > Species: Sylvilagus audubonii
