Vets have operated on a turtle who swallowed 915 coins while swimming in a good fortune pool in Thailand. The sea creature, nicknamed Bank, has been eating the pennies tourists throw into its pool in Sri Racha for many years. But when the coins formed an 11-pound ball in its stomach, cracking Bank’s ventral shell, the navy took the turtle to see the vet. Five surgeons from Chulalongkorn University’s veterinary faculty patiently removed the coins (below) over four hours while ‘Bank’ was under general anesthesia(above).
