Brucette's demise

Brucette (a.k.a. Mrs. Jaws, aka Jaws II) is a nickname coined by fans of the Jaws franchise. It attacked swimmers during the infamous 'Second Amity Incident', and was later depicted as the predator and antagonist in the film Jaws 2.  

Characteristics

A portion of this shark's face and jaws were burnt in a boating attack and the subsequent explosion. Later it is electrocuted by Brody after being lured into biting a cable, then set on fire near a small power station known as Cable Junction.

Name

Two sharks were constructed for the film as well as a tow fin. Two of the fully built mechanical sharks were initially referred to as 'Bruce Two' but then later affectionately nicknamed 'Harold and Fidel' in reference to the production lawyers. More recently fans have created their own name for the shark preferring to call her 'Brucette' as she was supposedly female and Bruce's mate (according to the film's novelization written by Hank Searls) of Bruce as seen in Jaws.

Animal Victims

Story notes

In the novelization of the film, (written by Hank Searls) it si revealed early in the book that Brucette was, in fact, the mate of the first shark (Bruce) that originally terrorized Amity.  

Returning to the same waters, Brucette manages to give birth to only one shark pup before or during her being electrocuted.  Years later, during the events of the novelization for Jaws: The Revenge (also written by Seals) Brucette's sole surviving pup would return as an adult to once more threaten the Brody family. Apparently, the electrocution had caused a mutation, thereby enhancing the pup's DNA and accelerated its growth process.

Trivia

Brucette is the only shark in the series to be electrocuted.
