There isn't really a difference, unless you are looking at age difference, but that is about it, I think you could have asked the difference between a hare and a rabbit, there is a difference there, the hare is from the lepus genus, and the rabbit is just considered leporidae no genus found there. Hope this helps.

Oh a trick question eh? There is no difference unless you mean the easter bunny. He is only a bunny because have you ever heard of the Easter rabbit , I rest my case.

It just depends on what the person wants to call the animal a bunny or a rabbit.  Technically, the proper word to use would be rabbit.  You would call a stuffed animal a bunny usually depending on what one wants to call it.
