During the opening, when the game warden is looking inside the beaver dam and is attacked, he is not using the regulator. During the attack scene when the game warden is being dragged across the lake, the regulator is in his mouth again and you can clearly hear him screaming.

When Wells shoots the tranquilizer into the trapped croc you can see the pink-feathered tranq projectile. The second croc jumps, is shot, and we cut back to the first croc who no longer has the tranquilizer dart.

When the deputy pulls up the anchor and the engine is started, he is in the back of the boat. In the next shot, as the boat starts to move, he is sitting in the front.

Crew or equipment visible 

The shadow of a camera on a tripod is briefly visible on the torso of Jack's shirt when he's talking to Kelly about US Wildlife. This is right before they look up at Hank dangling from the spring trap.

Errors in geography 

The opening high pan shot shows Camden Harbor - obviously on the coast. The sheriff's boat says "Aroostook County, which covers the northern third of the state and isn't remotely near the coast.

Factual errors 

When Kelly is flying into Maine in the Cessna, she is not wearing a headset, but yet she talks to the pilot. This would be impossible due to the loudness of the engine.
