Call her a hungry, hungry tortoise.

A turtle in Thailand is recovering from surgery after she ate nearly 1,000 coins that were thrown in her private pool.

The turtle is appropriately named “Bank,” or Omsin.

Omsin underwent surgery in the Thai seaside town of Sriracha, where vets removed the coins weighing 11 pounds, according to a New York Daily News report.

The turtle, which is expected to live to age 80, had begun to have difficulty swimming and had a crack in her underside because of all the coins she consumed, the Daily News report said.
