The mouth is separate from the head but is attached on this inside.  
The pull down on the trigger causes the mouth to open and since it  
snaps up, I'm figuring there is a spring in there (sort of a reverse  
of those gripper toys.)

If you want a clear simple version of this sort of puppet Andrew  
Moore has the following on his site
http://puppetbuilding.com/hand--rod-puppets/make-a-tennis-ball-rod- 
puppet.html

Also if you can find a copy of Hansj=FCrgen Fettig's Glove And Rod  
Puppets, A Handbook of Design and Technique, there is tons of  
information in there.
