In geometry, the snub hexahexagonal tiling is a uniform tiling of the hyperbolic plane. It has Schläfli symbol of sr{6,6}.


Drawn in chiral pairs, with edges missing between black triangles:

A higher symmetry coloring can be constructed from [6,4] symmetry as s{6,4}, CDel node h.pngCDel 6.pngCDel node h.pngCDel 4.pngCDel node.png. In this construction there is only one color of hexagon.
