Russian Crocodile With A Ringing Cell Phone In The Tummy

Oops! the crocodile swallowed the visitor's cell phone.  The Ukranian aquarium workers did not believe until the phone started ringing in the crocodile. The crocodile swallowed the Nokia cell phone when the visitor, Rimma Golovko, dropped it in the water.  The phone slipped out of her hands when she extended her hand to take a snap the crocodile opening his mouth.

The Associated Press and Yahoo news, the accident in the eastern city of Dnipropetrovsk sounds a bit like "Peter Pan," in which a crocodile happily went "tick-tock" after gulping down an alarm clock.  But Gena, the 14-year-old croc who swallowed the phone, has hardly been living a fairy tale: He hasn't eaten or had a bowel movement in four weeks and appears depressed and in pain.

Doctors tried to whet the crocodile's appetite this week by feeding him live quail rather than the pork or beef he usually gets once a week. The quail were injected with vitamins and a laxative, but while Gena smothered one bird, he didn't eat it.

When the crocodile is going to be X-rayed, the visitor is waiting for her SIM card in the phone that has her precious photos and contacts.
