Yes, the eyes are made by binding off a few stitches, then casting on more stitches than you cast off on the next row. They're actually nothing more than holes but they do look menacing.

As you're knitting the body of the gator, you are increasing across the row, then you bind off several stitches, knit a few, bind off again, then on the next row you knit even, closing the gap made by the binding off. That forms the "bumps" on the back.
