Bee hat (or hat with eater head siamese beehive) is a 15-bit still life that is a siamization of a beehive and a hungry hat.


Bee hat is the seventy-fifth most common still life in Achim Flammenkamp's census, being less common than cis-loaf with tail but more common than trans-rotated R-bee.[1] It is also the eighty-eighth most common object and fourth most common 15-bit still life on Adam P. Goucher's Catagolue.[2]


On April 29, 2007 Dean Hickerson found a 4-glider synthesis of this still life.[3]
