佛罗里达州的一条动物园鳄鱼接受了手术,以从她的胃中取出鞋子

一只名叫Anuket的尼罗河鳄鱼最近不得不在佛罗里达接受手术.

问题始于12月,当时一双鞋子从St鳄鱼栖息地上方的旅游者滑下的脚上滑下. Augustine Alligator Farm Zoological Park, 根据一个 社交媒体帖子 from the zoo.
Anuket, who lived in the enclosure with another croc, Sobek, ate the shoe.
Vets at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine performed the surgery on Anuket on February 5 after several efforts to dislodge the object from the 10.5-foot, 341-pound crocodile were unsuccessful, 根据 school’s Facebook post.
    During her most recent visit to UF, zoo medicine resident Garrett Fraess initially attempted to remove the shoe by reaching his arm up and through the crocodile’s esophagus but was unsuccessful,” the post said.
    The zoo medicine team then took Anuket for surgery, where Dr. Adam Biedrzycki, a large animal surgeon, attempted to manipulate the shoe through an incision and push it from the stomach to the esophagus, where Fraess hoped to be able to feel and grab hold of the shoe to pull it out. That effort, 太, failed.
    博士. Biedrzycki preformed the gastrotomy to make it easier to remove the shoe. 这次, the surgery was a success.
      After the shoe was removed Anuket was returned to her home and has been recuperating.
      Anuket is recovering well back at our zoo in an off-display area, but her full recovery will take some time before she will be able to rejoin Sobek in the Oasis,” the zoo said in a social media post.
