The turtle who gobbled coins (video)

Bank the turtle is recovering in Thailand after gobbling up coins that tourists threw money into her pond for luck.

The 25-year-old reptile was found struggling to breath and had a cracked shell, leading vets to believe she had a tumour.

But x-rays revealed an enormous lump of metal inside her stomach.

They have now performed a life-saving seven-hour surgery and pulled out a staggering 915 coins from around the world with an estimated value of over £800.
