# Talk:Eater 2

## Smaller bounding box

There is a variant with even smaller bounding box than that of Silver's. (19.12246) ``` x = 8, y = 6, rule = B3/S23 6b2o\$3b2o2bo\$b3ob2o\$o\$b3ob2o\$3bob2o! ``` Codeholic 13:47, 6 July 2013 (UTC)

## Double verison

Me and my friend find a double verison of the eater: ``` x = 9, y = 7, rule = B3/S23 7b2o\$2b2obo2bo\$2b2ob2o2\$2b2ob2o\$o2bob2o\$2o! ``` It can eat glider in 8 directions, block in 4 directions, pre-beehive in 4 directions etc.

We also find another verison of this eater: ``` x = 8, y = 8, rule = B3/S23 6b2o\$b2obo2bo\$b2ob2o2\$b2ob2o\$2bob2o\$o\$2o! ``` Roee 11:33, 20 May 2014 (UTC)
