A Little Bit of Mythology

For this month on the origami forum (the english one), the challenge is Mythology. There is, as mentioned, very little difference between "fantasy" and "mythology". However, I still think there is a good challenge behind it, because fantasy can simply be made up recently, where mythology is something from stories from long ago. You have to find a mythological creature, but can make up one of fantasy.
Anyway, enough about the differences. Here is the CP that I used. Note the "trianglepleating" used to make the thin arms.
Amikiri CP

So what does it fold? I forgot to mention. While looking through Wikipedia's list of creatures from mythology, I found something called an "Amikiri", from Japanese mythology. It has a long plated body, a bird-like head and lobster-like claws. Its also known as a net cutter.
If you fold the CP right, you should end up with a base with the beak, arms with claws, and body. Then, with a little detail, you should end up with something like this:
