Origami Video Tutorial – How to Make an Origami Ant 

A model design of Rui Roda

Do you like to fold origami animals? You’re in luck! Here at Origami Spirit, we feature origami models we know you’ll enjoy so be sure to visit the ORIGAMI ANIMALS GALLERY.

In Colombia, these leaf-cutter, winged ants are considered a delicacy and are either fried or roasted for consumption, an old tradition inherited from the Guanes, a pre-colonial culture. Some believe Hormiga Culona is an aphrodisiac and gift the ants as a wedding present.
