What disease was introduced to control rabbits in the 1950's?

Myxomatosis (sometimes shortened to "myxi" or "myxo") is a disease which affects rabbits. It is caused by the Myxoma virus. First observed in Uruguay in the late 1800s. It was introduced illegally to Egypt in 1842 and as a result spread to the rest of Africa. It was deliberately introduced into Australia in 1950 in an attempt to control rabbit infestation and population there; see rabbits in Australia. It was also deliberately introduced in the UK to try and reduce the rabbit population after World War II.

How long do pet rabbits live?

It depends on the breed, health, and how well you take care of the rabbit. The average rabbit lifespan is seven to nine years, but some breeds live longer than others. For example, the average Tan lives for five to seven years, but the average Thrianta lives from seven to ten years. And, obviously, if you do not take proper care of your rabbit or if the rabbit has a disease or his immune system has been weakened by a past disease, the rabbit will not live as long.
