Sea Turtle swallows coins- Jade Vignoe

Sea Turtle Swallows Coins
On March 7, 2017, a Thailand sea turtle had swallowed 915 coins. The turtle was eating them, as tourists would throw their coins into her pond for good luck. The doctors told the news that they have never seen a case like this. In order to get the coins out of the sea turtle’s belly, they had to cut open the shell. The operation took four hours. The doctors said that they had found coins in both its stomach and intestines. Without this operation, the turtle would not be able to digest or even eat, and would soon have died. The turtle will be released back to her home after a full recovery. They named her “Om Sin” which translates to Piggy Bank.
