Crew or equipment visible 

In the scene where the Creature attacks a pair of college students, it picks one of them up and tosses him into a nearby palm tree. The line attached to the stunt double is clearly visible as he hurtles through the air.

Errors in geography 

During the film's opening scenes on the Amazon River, the distinctive call of the Laughing Kookaburra from Australia can be heard; however, this bird cannot be found in South America.

Factual errors 

When Professor Ferguson is informed of the capture of the creature, his colleague refers to it as a "creature from the Devonian era" and something that should have "...died out a quarter of a million years ago." The Devonian is a geologic period, not an era (which marked the emergence and divergence of fish species and land plants, and, near its end, the first animals to venture onto land), and lasted from 416 million years ago to the beginning of the Carboniferous Period, 359 million years ago. As with the first Creature movie, the "scientists" not only do not know the terminology of geologic history, but their chronology is all wrong.

Clearly the 'creature of the black lagoon' is a fresh water creature, but they put him in a salt-water tank with the sharks, barracuda, etc.

Miscellaneous 

Early in the movie, when the men on the RITA II are shooting at the Creature, one of the projectiles meant to simulate bullets streaking through the water can clearly be seen bouncing off the Creature's back.

George calls Lucas "Lucas" but Lucas calls George "Joseph" (the name of a third character standing next to George).

Plot holes 

When the Creature drags Joe over the side of the holding tank into the water, two men jump in to save him. The Creature drags both of them under the water. When Joe jumps back in to save them, he only drags one to safety, apparently leaving the other one to drown.

Revealing mistakes 

Each time the Creature swims up to the window in the tank to see Helen, you can clearly see air leaking out of the top of the Creature's head, not from his gills or mouth.
