Title says all. The ones made contain more than 'dino' edges. I don't think it would be that hard to design, apart from the strange cuts.

It would turn around the highlighted blue regions.

Any takers?

True. But in my opinion, this is really the dino dodecahedron:

Sure, it turns around the faces, but it's equivalent to having only pyraminx crystal edges.

Wouldn't that just make it a truncated dino icosahedron? I've never seen a dino puzzle not turn around a corner.

I've always interpreted 'dino' to mean "corner turning." I don't see how your image is related at all. :? Can you explain what you mean?
