Continuity mistake: In the opening scene at the beginning of the movie, the Sheriff and Fish & Game diver are going to tag beavers. There is a clear shot of the diver under water at the beaver dam with a white oxygen tank. Shortly after he is attacked, part of his suit surfaces in the water with a black/gray oxygen tank, not white.
Continuity mistake: During the scene where Hector finds himself with the 30 foot crocodile, he blows up a raft and leaps on board his helicopter and takes off to find that the crocodile has bitten down on one of the pontoons. The crocodile clearly bends the pontoon with its teeth. But when the helicopter finally goes airborne, the pontoon is fully intact, only the tarp covering is ripped.
Deliberate mistake: While Hector is in the water with the crocodile, he yells to the female officer to start the helicopter by turning the key. It takes a lot more than just the key to start a Bell Jet Ranger helicopter. Fuel shutoff valve, throttle, key, and the main rotor doesn't start rotating until the throttle on the collective stick is turned to a specific position.William Bergquist
Trivia: In the scene with Fonda and Gleeson reaching the morgue to look at the tooth, you can hear in the background a page for Dr Miner. Steve Miner directed the film.
