The University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine said the 11-foot crocodile was brought to the facility Feb. 5, after ingesting a shoe that fell from a zipliner's foot at the St. Augustine Alligator Farm Zoological Park.


Veterinarians said the croc had originally thrown up the shoe, but ate it a second time. Vets attempted to get the crocodile to vomit again, but without success.


The 341-pound crocodile ended up undergoing a gastrotomy surgical procedure to remove the footwear from its stomach.


The crocodile, named Anuket, was kept overnight for supervision and is now recovering in its enclosure at the zoo.
