Color for January :: GREEN Alligator

I'm trying to add more color to my very gray January.  (Loved the chair fort idea Jana!!)

So here's a very green little guy I knitted up for a little friend.  It's an alligator, in case you can't tell, who seems to have some very British dental hygiene going on. 

I haven't determined a way to get the teeth to not splay out like that!  He's a prototype and if I can get the teeth to not do that, I'm going to offer him as a free pattern to download! 

(I tucked in his teeth for this photo, but generally he has sort of a Goofy vibe happening)
So any tips on fixing the teeth would be great.  I knitted them as a 'points trim' one at a time.  Very time consuming and then did a little shaping with the yarn end. 

Puppet was enjoyed by all and then sent home with his new friend!

So cute! Knitting is magic, its been shown/explained to me but I still find it inexplicable. Thus, smile you are a wizard!

I love it! Beautiful alligator. On the teeth, what if you used white felt? They'd still be soft, but might hold up a bit more.
