A whole number ratio kite that is reflective of pythgorus' theorem. A four sided kite when split down the longer middle makes two pathapazoids. The most basic Kitrazoid has a 3-3-4-4 ratio perimeter, with the long diagonal from the 3-3 corner to the 4-4 corner being 5.

Another has a whole number ratio of 5-5-11-11, with the long diagonal from the 5-5 to 11-11 corner being 13.

Essentially a Kitrazoid belongs in the 'Right Kite' family of quadrilaterals, but the difference is that the perimeter is a whole number ratio of numbers.

Thus a Kirtazoid is a kind of magical real number ratio object.   The sides of a quadrilateral are usually ignored, only the square and rhombus get special attention because their sides are an equal ratio of 1:1:1:1.
