Re: how long do rabbits live

Rabbits can live to 10, my old dutch lottie lived til she was 9 1/2 her sister lived til she was 8 1\2, depends how you look after them and how many health problems they come across just like humans. You've obviously loked after your bun very well

Re: how long do rabbits live

I have had quite a few rabbits. Some lived to about 5, some less. But an Albino rabbit I had (he was a big boy) he lived to 9 years old.
