I have very sharp teeth and I like to eat different types of meat
My tail is very long and green
My skin is one of the oldest skins you'll ever see
I like to live in lakes and rivers and I'm scaring some people

What am I?

    $\begingroup$ I like this riddle... but if you head to one of my riddles, there is a comment below by one of the moderators, @Deusovi $\diamondsuit$ who says the following words: "I downvoted because this is a very straightforward riddle, with seemingly no attempt to obscure any information. It's closer to "identify this object" than an actual riddle." I believe your riddle risks falling under what he said... $\endgroup$ – Feeds Aug 22 '18 at 13:01
  • $\begingroup$ This is a good point @user477343 -- you'll notice that a lot of my explanations for the clues you gave were "This is also true..." Obscuring the information to make things a bit more complicated definitely helps improve riddle quality! $\endgroup$ – El-Guest Aug 22 '18 at 13:07

    $\begingroup$ @El-Guest I feel slightly bad for raising the point, because I do personally like the riddle and do not wish to discourage the OP from making riddles (or anyone for that matter!). It is just that from my experience, there is a certain standard that must be met on this site, especially when making riddles; there are heaps of puzzlers on this site that see riddles just about everyday (myself included) :) $\endgroup$ – Feeds Aug 22 '18 at 13:11
  • $\begingroup$ @user477343 you are entirely correct though, and your feedback is always so positive! :D I'm definitely agreeing with you on this one; usually there's some sort of wordplay or twist in the puzzle; this one felt more like a straightforward description. It was a good early puzzle but there's always room to grow! :) $\endgroup$ – El-Guest Aug 22 '18 at 13:15
