Issue type "bug" not displayed in dropdown

I am using the 30 day trial version of JIRA to see if it works for my organization. I went in to create an issue. And I wanted the type to be "bug". But the drop down only lists Tasks and New Feature. How do I get all the different issue types to be populated in the dropdown?

Oh, too late... David already nailed it :)
