It has been my experience that the mouth color in both species of dwarf caiman change to a yellowish-brown tint as the caiman ages. This appears to be more pronounced in trigonatus and is normal development. A foul odor or any type of drainage would indicate a problem.

Here's an 11" trigonatus

And the same animal at 24"
