...someone who studies rabbits? Like if you study butterflies you're a lepodoptorist.

The Latin word for 'rabbit' is cuniculus, so perhaps it could be a cuniculopterist... cunicologist...

Rabbit expert!

Actually, looking stuff up, it doesn't look like there is a term. But if I have to make one, I would say "leporidist", because both rabbits and hares come from the family Leporidae.

Although this also includes pikas, so it isn't perfect. :?

leporidist

That does sound rather like something you would need to see your Dr about: 'Dr, I think I'm coming down with a nasty bout of leporidistitus'.

:shock: That sounds serious... what are the symptoms? rash, double vision, night terrors, obsession with lagomorphs?

They symptoms are very similar to obsessive-compulsive-buying-more-toys-for-rabbits syndrome. It leads to an acute lack of interest in anything that does not involve rabbits. The outlook is poor - unless you happen to be a rabbit that is owned by a human afflicted by leporidistitus, in which case your outlook is pretty good :D
