Lola the turtle was constipated, x-rays turned up something surprising and ironic

Lola the turtle arrived at Avian & Exotic Animals Medical Center in Miami, Florida feeling a bit down in the dumps.

Her owner believed the ailment was constipation.

X-rays revealed it was a bit more than constipation. Lola had a taste for turtles, it appears. Or at least, a turtle pendant.

Here she is with her vet Dr. Don Harris.

We wonder, does this penchant for turtle pendants make Lola a cannibal?

She’s currently being treated with laxatives and enemas but things, as the vet says, should “come out” ok.
