Surgeon remove 915 coins swallowed by sea turtle 

Veterinarians in Bangkok operated on the 25-year-old female green sea turtle who had been inadvertently fed a diet of coins by luck-seeking tourists. Surgeons made a 4-inch incision in Bank, removing 11 pounds of coins that had cracked part of its shell -- causing a life-threatening infection.
Many Thais believe throwing coins on turtles will bring longevity, and nearly a thousand tossed coins at Bank in her pool in the eastern town of Sri Racha.

It is, and if they'd fed the turtle enough of it there would have been a Las Vegas jackpot impression, and problem solved.
