As in the first Blob's Borders:

Divide the below grid into ten areas (blobs) so that each area:

• ... is contiguous (all cells connect via edges, not just vertices).
• ... has exactly one of the ten numbers shown in the grid.
• ... contains as many cells as the number that it contains.
• ... borders (along edges, not vertices) the same number of other areas as the number that it contains; for example, a 6-cell area will border six other areas, again based on the digit 6 that is contained within its bounds.

 2 4 3 4 5 6 2 3 5 2

An example of a completed puzzle of this type is

 3 4 4 4 3 6 4 3 3 2
