Equilateral triangle divided by sixteen

The scaling factor from one generation to the next is 1/4. This reptile has lots of symmetry. Four possibilities are shown below, with all of them taken through three iterations.

At far right is a path I found that essentially traces out the fractal at left. This path can be iterated such that it will trace out the fractal at any stage in non-crossing fashion and remain unicursal (a single strand).
