Folding Challenge "Fold a dinosaur"

I folded this stegosaurus when I was with my family on a very, very long and tedious hunt for... I don't remember. I had a large piece of paper from a sales ad that the business we were patronizing had waiting by the door as we entered. "What should I make?" I asked my son, "A dinosaur!" was his reply. Now I have made many a dinosaur in the past, but I wanted to try something new, and so I set out, for the hour or so we were winding through the isles looking for hidden treasures and the like.

Its a bit long for his type, and his tail spikes are all wrong, but otherwise I think it does a really good job of capturing the creature. This is one of many that I believe I can replicate, but have no idea what happened to the original so if anyone would like to have instructions on how to fold him I could probably oblige given enough time.

Me encanta el origami soy practicante del arte en papel

Origami is a fun pastime! Your stegosaurus looks pretty good, he's definitely worth keeping.

Thanks, and I think it might be...somewhere. I have a box of little things we put on the Chirstmas tree every year. Otherwise I try to keep only a few out.

Yes I know what you mean by keeping only a few models out at a time, they can easily become 'cluttersome' if you let them take over (speaking from experience 😉)
See you around bflanagin, enjoy your weekend!
