SUMMARY- I can't wait to try out the Chinese Dragon and the Crow! There are a lot of amazing models here. I am a well-practiced novice(I've been folding since I was nine - but I've stuck to favorites most of my life and haven't expanded my repertoire much until recently), so the models I worked from the sea creatures book weren't smooth sailing for me, but I did manage reasonable facsimiles. It takes some work - and practice - and the right paper - but these more lifelike models are quite doable, and very very cool.
