When Chief Brody throws the air tank into the sharks mouth, he throws it in bottom first meaning the valve part is sticking out of the sharks mouth. Later, when the shark is charging him and Chief Brody is shooting at the tank, it's reversed and now the bottom of the tank is sticking out of the sharks mouth.
