    Populations of typical prey animals, such as deer, might exceed the carrying capacity of an ecosystem if top predators, such as mountain lions, are removed. Without the mountain lions, increased numbers of deer may reduce the food supply available to other herbivores, such as field mice and crickets. Survival Depends on Habitat. Habitat Provides Essential Food and Cover. The main threat to the New England cottontail is the loss of its habitat to human development and forest succession, and the lack of disturbance-causing events to naturally create new patches of young forest. Small populations isolated from other cottontails run the.

It has been widely introduced elsewhere, often with devastating effects on local r, its decline in its native range (caused by the diseases myxomatosis and rabbit Class: Mammalia.From the Eastern cottontail rabbit adaptations in living style and behavior, one must realize that no matter how small the species, survival is always due to the fittest.

The Eastern cottontail is very good at surviving, but its lifespan is short, 3 years at a maximum, so this helps in keeping population in control.A population of cottontail rabbits gives birth to an average of eight kits (baby rabbits) per litter, and it only has one predator.

However, an average of only two kits per litter actually lives to maturity. Which of these might explain this low survival rate?

A) There is enough grass to feed up to nine kits per litter.
