How Long Does a Rabbit Live?

Here are a few facts about rabbit longevity and life spans:

  • Spayed or neutered house rabbits generally live 8 to 12 years.

  • According to the Guiness Book of World Records, the oldest rabbit in the world lived to the age of 18.

  • Larger rabbits generally have shorter lifespans than dwarf rabbits.

  • Purebred rabbits generally have shorter lifespans than mixed breeds.

  • An unspayed female rabbit is at very high risk for cancer.

  • Outdoor rabbits have (on average) a much shorter lifespan because of the many risks and hazards associated with living outdoors.

House Rabbit Society is a non-profit rescue and education group.
