Not much difference. Most people use "bunny" to refer to baby rabbits, but "bunny" can also refer to adult rabbits.

Why is the rabbit called a rabbit?

No one is sure where the term came from. One theory is that it comes from the Gaelic word 'bun', used for squirrels, rabbits and charming women. Some believe it refers to the rabbit's bun-shaped tail.

Another theory states that the rabbit's original name was "coney," a reference to rabbit and hare. Since it sounds close to a vulgar word, people started to avoid it and use the rhyming word "bunny" instead. Originally, rabbit was used to describe a small rabbit, and "bunny" was used to describe an adult, but in modern times, these meanings have changed.
