Origami Wildlife

Animals are the most fun to make, especially when you can actually get an elephant to look like an elephant. There is something quite magical and almost sacrilegious about holding a little creature in your hands and thinking, Wow, I made that! 
These are all pretty basic, except for the lion by Robert Lang, which was a bit of a pain in the fanny. You can never give me a break, can you, Mr. Lang?

I stayed late in the office to finish up some...ahem, work.

My twin fogs made from one sheet of paper.

Extinct wildlife is cool too.


  1. Looks like you've got a mouse in your barley sugars.

  2. This is lovely, where did you get the frog pattern from?
