Crocodile's Tummy Rings After Eating Cellphone

Illustration for article titled Crocodiles Tummy Rings After Eating Cellphone

14-year-old Gena has discovered that some cellphones are crocodile-proof. They can withstand crocodile's teeth, throat muscles and stomach acids. Gena knows because she ate one, and now it's ringing in her stomach.


Poor Gena. According to the aquarium in where she lives—in the eastern Ukrainian city of Dnipropetrovsk—she has been refusing food since she ate the cellphone, a Nokia that was dropped by some idiot that goes by the name of Rimma Golovko. Rimma put her arm through the cage bars and dropped the phone on the water, where Gena ate it.

The crocodile caretakers didn't believed her until they called the cellphone and it started to ring inside the surprised reptile. But, like the rest of the world, Gena doesn't like Nokias. Alexandra, an employee at the aquarium, says that she's not feeling well: "His behavior has changed, he moves very little and swims much less than he used to." Still, chief veterinarian Oleksandr Shushlenko says that they are not going to remove the cellphone unless Gena continues to refuse food next week. [AP]
