House rabbits usually live 8-12 years. The oldest rabbit seems to be 16 years old (there is a thread somewhere in this forum about it) - but that is an exception. Small rabbits seem to live longer than very big ones.

My oldest was 8 but I know many live much longer.

Larger breeds tend to have shorter life spans.

I was given a pregnant rabbit once and one of her babies lived 10 years, never spayed or vaccinated so I don't know how! She was a medium sized rabbit.
