I think he's rather neat. I chose a red zipper to close his mouth and his teeth are made of white felt. The body is crocheted in one piece and then the dorsal and pectoral fins are added after. My son wants a whale version of him (I will make it without teeth, a much smaller dorsal fin and the tail on the horizontal instead of the vertical)... and my daughter wants a narwhal! So now I need to figure out how to add that tusk!
