    ...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!

    I think it's lagomorphologist. Just rolls right off the tongue!

    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'.
