Here's my prototype for an alligator version of the fish.
He has a zipper for a mouth.
He is fully lined and has pointy little teeth.
His stuffed legs have claws
And he can eat a ridiculous amount of toys.
Since Jennifer asked I will probably try to do a tutorial for him ( not that I make any promises to complete one before her kids graduate ...college...) He is actually a really fun and simple sew once the pattern was created.... until then he made my brain hurt.
