Dinosaurs continue to be some of my favourite things to fold so in this post we’re going to take a look at another fantastic round of origami dinosaurs.

Kaede Nakamura has designed an excellent Styracosaurus. Finding a way to fold all those horns couldn’t have been easy.

Here’s an awesome paper Stegosaurus. The individual spikes on the back are very impressive. You can kind of see how many layers of paper are in the back to make room for those spikes.

Satoshi Kamiya’s Coelophysis is one of my favourite origami dinosaurs and it’s actually not that difficult to fold!

Tran Trung Hieu is definitely a master of origami dinosaurs so of course we have to include some of his work. I love the claws in this model and the paper he used is beautiful as well.

The Iguanadon is a pretty awesome dinosaur and is known for it’s thumb-like claws. I quite like how those thumbs look in this paper version.

This is an amazing looking dinosaur. It’s folded from a single square of paper and that includes all those individually folded teeth! It took Shuki Kato 15 hours to fold this thing.

Here’s another incredible dinosaur design from Tran Trung Hieu. It uses 2-coloured paper so you end up with a different colour for the sail along the back.

This is another incredible origami dinosaur but unfortunately I don’t know who the designer or folder is. The spikes and other details in this model are awesome.

I really like origami folded from paper money. Here we have a really great Coelophysis folded from some Vietnamese money.

I absolutely love origami dinosaur skeletons. They usually use multiple sheets of paper but they always look super impressive. I think this one though is actually folded from just one sheet of paper!

Here’s another incredible dinosaur that’s folded from a single sheet of paper and that includes all the teeth. The facial expression on this one is awesome.

This Allosaurus really looks like it belongs in a Far Side cartoon to me… It’s definitely because of the teeth.

This is definitely one of the best Velociraptor designs I’ve seen out there. The face especially is really great.

Our final model for this post is another absolutely fantastic Carnotaurus designed by Kei Watanabe who is a master of origami. I’m pretty sure this whole thing is folded from one sheet of paper.
