Origami Animals

This page is dedicated to origami animals. There are many kinds of animals and there are many ways to categorize them. Please be patient because some of the links takes you to another page of links. Diagrams listed are "easy" or "intermediate". Instructions for "complex" origami animals and crease patterns are not included because they are beyond the range of this audience.
