A 14 year old crocodile in the Ukraine swallowed a tourist’s cell phone and is has become constipated, lethargic and has lost his appetite -for over a month so far. Zoo keepers tried to feed the croc live quails stuffed with laxative, but even after smothering one to death, he still refused to eat it. If this goes on another week, the keepers will be forced to perform surgery.
Meanwhile, the phone keeps ringing and the woman has insisted that she get the SIM card back from her phone after the croc releases it.

While the TSA has managed to prove its uselessness and incompetence time and time again, here’s one accident they could have actually done something about. So sure, having to throw away water bottles and nail clippers is idiotic, at least bag X Rays ensure no one smuggles a live crocodile onto a plane which will terrify everyone and cause 20 people to die in a crash. Funny enough, I think this is the nicest thing I’ve said about the organization ever.
If you didn’t think crocodiles were cute, think again. They’re downright precious when they happen to be dwarf caimans dressed as Iron Man.
