Bunnies 10b is a methuselah with lifespan 17431 that was found by Nick Gotts on November 8, 2019.[1] It is currently the longest-lived known 10-cell methuselah, bypassing bunnies 10a by only six generations and bunnies 10 by eight. It evolves into the same final ash as bunnies, and therefore the same ash as bunnies 10 minus an extra glider.

Stable pattern

The stable pattern that results from bunnies 10b, 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.
