I've been attempting to fold that amazing cobra for sometime now. The only problem is i need a very large sheet of paper preferably 5" by 150"
is there any store that sells paper this large?

The problem with most fax paper is that it is thermal paper. If you fold it, it turns black where you touch it. I folded a paper crane that ended with black fingerprints on the wings.

It can create nice effects if you expect it, but if you don't expect the effect it just looks dirty.

Check in to rolls of kraft paper, that might do the trick.

Or try getting some wrapping paper - not the sheet kind you find in stores, but the really long rolls of the stuff. Paper companies sell these wholesale to gift shops, but some of these companies do small quantity sales as well.
