Omsin the green sea turtle had over 900 coins in her stomach

Omsin, a 25 year old femal green sea turtle, was found to have over 900 metal coins in her stomach. She most likely swallowed them when people threw them in her pond for good luck. Maybe people should stop doing that.
Omsin, piggy bank in Thai, is expected to make a full recovery.
