Tromino divided by nine

The scaling factor from one generation to the next is 1/3. This reptile has a single axis of mirror symmetry, allowing for choices in the orientation of the smaller units in cases where those units lack mirror symmetry. The two examples below are carried through four iterations. The reptiles for the two are not exactly the same, but they are very similar.
