Default Decoration Shotgun

Since my shotgun course has been canceled, and I need to reschedule later, I decided to find some ideas of decoration my gun.

I have an Beretta A300 Outlander, but it doesn't look exotic nor "Outlander" enough.

I'm aiming to snazz it up with a savage safari theme. My current idea is to string some great white shark teeth and alligator teeth along the barrel and under the rib to prevent it from slipping off.

I initially wanted to stick the barrel right through a small gator head to make it look like it was spitting out a shell instead of being shot, but obviously that would get in the way of the sight.

So I'm trying to look for some small gator head and snake head that I can string on the barrel along with the shark teeth.

Of course, I would string it not too tightly but not too loosely either.

I've seen gator heads on key chains before, so I think I would be able to find a gator head on a string. So any ideas where I can find small snake heads and small gator heads online?

Id put a small bouquet of pretty flowers into the end of the barrel. Then blast em all over creation.

Alright, so I found a genuine cobra head on a key chain that I can string along the barrel. Apparently, there are purses, wallets, and belts made of cobra skins. And obviously, the leather workers wouldn't let such a unique item go to waste.

Now for baby alligator heads on a key chain. The shark teeth would be the easy part. LOL! I love your reactions.

Edit: Spitting cobra from somewhere in Asia. That should give it some exoticness.

Get a couple of lithium batteries to go under the buttstock, and a string of LED Christmas lights. Find a spare pressure switch for a laser, and you are good to go. Wrap the lights around the action and barrel, keeping the ejection port clear.

Sprig of mistletoe is optional.

Anyone else have shotgun shell X-mas tree lights? Got em from Dick's Sporting Goods many years ago. Bet Cabelas sells 'em! Used to string 'em up around the shotgun lounge at my shooting range during the holidays...
