Thai Turtle Has 5 Pounds Of Coins Removed
(Bangkok) — A Thai turtle had enough coins inside her to start a pretty good bank account. Veterinarians today removed nearly 915 coins from the 25-year-old sea turtle named “Omsin.” She’s been swallowing coins tossed into her pool for good luck for decades. The eleven pounds of coins inside Omsin was making it difficult for her to move around. Thai doctors say the first of its kind surgery to tap the turtle’s internal bank account took some seven hours to complete.
