When Rimma Golovko reported to staff at an aquarium in Ukraine that a crocodile had swallowed her cell phone, at first they thought it was a crock. But when they heard the phone ringing from inside the animal, they realized she was telling the truth. Apparently Golovko had been using her mobile to try to snap a picture of the reptile opening his mouth when the phone slipped from her hand and went down the hatch. The crocodile, “Gena”, may need surgery to remove the phone. (JW/AP) ...Which will be scheduled as soon as the croc stops following Captain Hook.
