Mind-Blowing Origami Dinosaur Skeletons

I’ve been wanting to make a post about origami dinosaur skeletons for a while because these models are absolutely amazing.

Almost all of these models except for one which I’ll mention later are folded from multiple sheets of paper but that doesn’t make them any less amazing.

We’ll start off with some Tyrannosaurus Rex models because you can’t make a post about dinosaurs without T-Rexs.

With this model Mariano Zavala B. took Issei Yoshino’s T-Rex design and modified it to make it look much more ferocious and awesome.

Here’s Issei Yoshino’s T-Rex again but this time it’s not modified and folded by Matthieu Georger.

Here’s an excellent photo of the original T-Rex model folded by Al3bbasi on a dark background so you can see the details well.

Finally here’s the T-Rex model again folded by Gonzalo but modified slightly to have more teeth.

Next we have a photo of an excellent looking origami Stegosaurus taken at an origami exhibit.

Next we have a Brachiosaurus design by Fumiaki Kawahata which like the T-Rex design above takes on a different personality depending on who folded it.

This next model by Nguyen Minh Duc is one of my favourites. The entire skeleton and wall is folded from just one sheet of paper!
