Snub order-6 square tiling

In geometry, the snub tetratritetragonal tiling or snub order-6 square tiling is a uniform tiling of the hyperbolic plane. It has Schläfli symbol of s{(4,4,3)} or s{4,6}.

The symmetry is doubled as a snub order-6 square tiling, with only one color of square. It has Schläfli symbol of s{4,6}.

The vertex figure does not uniquely generate a uniform hyperbolic tiling. Another with quadrilateral fundamental domain (3 2 2 2) and 2*32 symmetry is generated by :
