I used a sphinx as reference for this and ended up straying pretty far from the source material... The head prints as a ball in socket joint that has to be popped in after printing. It allows for the head to spin 360°. The tail consists of 3 hindge joints allowing it to move up and down.
Why the STL's are backwards... I don't know. Just give this bad boy a good spin to check it out!
The link below gives a detailed explanation of how I made this:
I used the infill patern of triangles which worked well. The print time for this was only a little under 3 hours.
