Tarantula

I've folded this model tons of times. It has a lot of interesting sinks in the middle of the folding sequence that took me a while to figure out. I used purplish paper for this partly because of something Nicolas Terry wrote in Origami for Interpreters:

"...it may be better to move as far away as possible from the animal's natural color than to have a bad imitation of it."
None of my brown paper was very tarantula-like.
