Visible crew/equipment: Four patrol cars are chasing Bond and the villain by the road. Bond and the villain arrive at a dead end and they jump over the road with their boats.

Trivia: On a previous scouting mission for the film, the team passed a roadside sign on a gate which read "Trespassers Will Be Eaten" - this transpired to be a Jamaican crocodile farm, owned by one Ross Kananga. His father had been eaten by one of these beasts - he was always quick to point out which of the 1500 or so - and with his disregard for the dangers involved with his profession, he was widely regarded by the crew as being a lunatic. He obviously made an impression, though, as it was decided that his farm would be written into the script and even his name was used for that of the villain. Most of the stunts performed with these crocodiles in the film were done by Kananga himself. For one shot, however, Moore was required to stand on an island, surrounded by hungry reptiles. The actor suggested that a nice touch would be for him to wear crocodile shoes for the scene. The live animals were removed and replaced with fakes, and Moore placed on the island. Once the cameras started to roll, some of the fake crocodiles began edging towards the actor .

Question: Bond kills Kananga at the end by placing the bullet with the air pellet in his mouth which causes him to inflate and explode. But Bond had the bullet in his own mouth before when he was concealing it. Why didn't it kill him?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: Bond just stored the bullet in his own mouth to hide it. As he puts it in Kananga's mouth he presumably pulls a pin, or forces Kananga to bite it.
