With the start of 2011, the holiday season is now behind us, but while visiting the American Museum of Natural History, I spotted a lovely group of yuletide dinosaurs. Arranged around a Christmas tree were origami versions of many creatures, living and extinct, including numerous dinosaurs. Stegosaurs, ceratopsians, coelurosaurs---the variety of paper dinosaurs was quite impressive. I especially liked the long-necked sauropod, although the selected posture for its neck would likely stir debate among paleontologists.
