Sri Racha pond in Thailand is visited by tourists as it’s believed that throwing money to the pond brings good luck.

Bank the turtle, who lives in the pond has eaten money which are thrown to the pond.

The Thai turtle is said to have gobbled almost a thousand coins and has been operated to get what has been deposited.

The increased weight of Bank has eventually cracked it’s underside shell.

However, after a four hour operation, the turtle is said to be recovering, though it’s a strictly liquid diet for the next two weeks.
