Lolita is a killer whale who lives at the Miami Seaquarium. While writing the script, Michael O'Donoghue and Mitch Glazer watched her perform. At one point, her trainer puts his head in her mouth. This inspired them to write the scene in which she bites a man's head off. Production was halted during the filming of this scene.
