There’s a pretty wide array of origami snakes out there. I didn’t think there would be so much since origami is usually folded from a square sheet of paper and snakes are so long but surprisingly enough there’s some amazing origami snake designs out there.

A lot of them are folded from a giant rectangle of paper though, but that’s ok.

We’ll start this post out with this awesome Blunt Nosed Vinesnake.

Ronald Koh has designed an absolutely amazing origami cobra. It’s folded from a super giant rectangle of paper and it must take forever to fold the body with all those scales.
