Deep Blue Sea

Trivia: In both Jaws and Deep Blue Sea there is a scene involving a license plate. In Jaws it is removed from the belly of the dead tiger shark. In Deep Blue Sea it is removed from the teeth of a tiger shark. Not only are both sharks the same kind but both plates are from Louisiana. The license plate number is the same in both films: 007 o 981 Exp 72-73.

Trivia: All three sharks are killed in almost the same way the first three sharks is killed in the 'Jaws' movies. Blown up with gas, electrocuted and the last one is blown up.

Trivia: Director Renny Harlin has a cameo as one of the employees of Aquatica who are leaving the facility for their weekend break in the opening scene.

Trivia: Famed horror author Stephen King is a big fan of Deep Blue Sea - it was the first movie he saw after being released from hospital after being hit by a truck.

Factual error: Near the beginning when the boat pulls up and the guy on the boat tells the blond convict he's got a beauty 13 foot "Tiger shark" that's up in some sort of sling, the so called tiger shark is actually the same robot mako shark from the rest of the movie, just with stripes on it. Tiger sharks have a blunt rounded nose, not a pointed one like a great white. (00:07:35)

Russell Franklin: You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... And only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

Question: How did they do the scene when one of the sharks ate the bird? I know they used animatronic sharks for any interaction with the people, so did they use the same method for the bird? It was "inside" the shark after all.
