The Farallon Shark Dart Repeater, into which Hooper pours "20cc of strychnine nitrate" before he enters the shark cage, was not designed to accept, nor be a receptacle for, poison. It was designed solely to cause massive internal damage by triggering a CO2 charge once the steel dart penetrates the shark's skin.
The producers gratefully acknowledge the cooperation of The Nation Geographical Society and Mr. L.J.V. Compagno of the Department of Biological Sciences, Stanford University.
