We also learned how and by whom three mechanical shark models were made. We stopped our story on the first two victims of the monster. Today, let's see how the number of victims reached five, how it all ended and what happened to the mechanical Bruces after filming ended.

58. We would have ended our story on this if it weren’t for NRP reporter Corey Turner, who, after several decades, decided to find at least one of the original Bruces. He first received the following comment from former art director Joe Alves: "...when filming was over, the sharks were just left on location and they rotted." Then, on one of the Facebook pages, Turner came across a mention of the fourth Bruce. It turned out that the fourth twin brother was never used in the film. It was made from original drawings for the Universal Studios theme park in Hollywood, where it hung on its tail from 1975 to 1990. Later, the copy was nevertheless found by a reporter in one of the car cutting plants in Sun Valley, where he got with cars from the Universal transportation department, which were purchased by the owner of the establishment, Sam Adlen.
