fod for thought

I re­mem­ber around late 2001 I read a fan­tasy novel that started with a man work­ing in a bi­ol­ogy lab only to be trans­ported to a dif­fer­ent world. Af­ter he built a camp and a fire on his first night a strangely fear­less rab­bit came up to him and he cooked and ate it. Af­ter meet­ing his first hu­man he dis­cov­ered all an­i­mals on that world are hu­mans in the day and an­i­mals at night. Any idea what it might be?
