Bunnies 10a is a methuselah with lifespan 17425 that was found by Nick Gotts on June 4, 2019.[1] It is currently the longest-lived known 10-cell methuselah, bypassing bunnies 10 by only two generations. It evolves into the same final ash as bunnies, and therefore the same ash as bunnies 10 minus an extra glider.

The version shown in the infobox is a variant with a slightly smaller bounding box, found by Aidan F. Pierce shortly after its discovery.[2]

Stable pattern

The stable pattern that results from bunnies 10a, excluding 40 escaping gliders, has 1544 cells and consists of 136 blinkers (including 14 traffic lights), 109 blocks, 65 beehives (including three honey farms), 41 gliders, 18 boats, 18 loaves, seven ships, four tubs, three ponds and two toads.
