Turtle Gets a C-Section to Save Her Life (video)

In 2013, a suddenly listless turtle was brought to the vet by her owners.  X-rays found 14 eggs stuck inside her cloaca that she was unable to pass - called egg binding.  The poor turtle would have died if not for the decision to perform a C-section to remove the eggs.  The turtle survived!
