Bunnies is a 9-cell methuselah found by Robert Wainwright . In 1986 , Andrew Trevorrow independently discovered rabbits , the generation 1 of bunnies, that also has 9 cells and a smaller bounding box .
Stable pattern
Generation 17332 of bunnies, excluding escaped gliders
The stable pattern that results from bunnies has 1744 cells and 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 .^{[1]}
Variants
The common stage of other bunnies variants
Several methuselahs have been discovered later that converge to the bunnies sequence. The bottleneck stage at generation 13 of bunnies appears at generation 91 of bunnies 9 , 104 of bunnies 10 (excluding an escaped glider), 106 of bunnies 10a , 112 of bunnies 10b and 146 of bunnies 11 (excluding an escaped glider), together with a hexaplet spark that dies off after another six generations. These methuselahs are tabulated below:

Currently, bunnies 10b is the longest-lived known 10-cell methuselah while bunnies 9 is the longest-lived known with 9 or fewer cells. The original form of bunnies 10a has a slightly larger bounding box.
