The **tetrapod** is a semi-uniform polygon that has 8 sides of two different edge lengths. The angles of a tetrapod are always 45 degrees. It is a faceting of the ditetragon.

## Vertex coordinates[edit | edit source]

A tetrapod with minor edge length 1 and major edge length x centered at the origin will have vertex coordinates given by all permutations of:
