In [7] the following conjecture is stated: every tessellation of the Euclidean plane with convex tiles induces a non-hyperbolic graph. It is natural to think that this statement holds since the Euclidean plane is non-hyperbolic. Furthermore, there are several results supporting this conjecture. However, this work shows that the conjecture is false.
