Croc swallows mobile phone, becomes constipated and burps ringtones


Gena, a 14-year-old crocodile at an aquarium in Ukraine, "has been refusing food and acting listless after eating a cell phone dropped by a woman as she tried to photograph him."

The phone keeps ringing.

The woman "is resigned to losing her phone, but still wants its SIM card back since that has her precious photos and contacts." And the crocodile has bigger problems: he "has not eaten or had a bowel movement in four weeks and appears depressed and in pain."
