Eastern Cottontail (Sylvilagis floridanus). The Eastern Cottontail is the most common rabbit on the east coast. They produce 3-4 liters a year with typically 4-5 young. If no young were lost, a single pair could produce 350,000 rabbits in 5 years. However, the average lifespan of a rabbit is less than a year.
