One Frightened Rabbit

This is what a rabbit looks like when it has just discovered that it is sharing the same lush and grassy enclosure with a male Bonobo at the Columbus Zoo.  I watched this creature munching on lettuce placed intended for the pack of apes.  When the male Bonobo showed up, I thought the bunny's little eyes were going to pop right out of its head.  An instant after I clicked the shutter for this image, it bolted back into the higher vegetation. 

My only question is this-  Is this just your typical eastern cottontail rabbit that the zoo staff tolerates living in the Bonobo enclosure, or is this some type of other rabbit species that is actually a part of the zoo collections?
