Bunnies 9 is a methuselah with lifespan 17410 that was found by Paul Callahan. It is currently the longest-lived known methuselah with 9 or fewer cells. Its name comes from the fact that after generation 91 it evolves similarly to the methuselah bunnies.
The stable pattern that results from bunnies 9 has 1744 cells and is the exact same as that of bunnies. That is, it consists of 136 blinkers (including 14 traffic lights), 109 blocks, 65 beehives (including three honey farms), 40 gliders, 18 boats, 18 loaves, seven ships, four tubs, three ponds and two toads.
