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.

The organizers of the event at an outdoor rink in the Edmonton area said the game, which began Feb. 4, ended with a score of 2,649 goals for "Team Cure" and 2,528 for "Team Hope."


The hockey game raised more than $1.4 million, surpassing a $1.2 million goal. The money will be used to fund cancer research at the University of Alberta.


Players said earlier in the game that they were struggling with extreme cold temperatures that caused pucks to shatter and sticks to break.


"This was definitely the coldest game we've ever seen," organizer Kate Gallagher told CBC News. "It was all part of the adventure. The players were troopers. They were warriors."


Organizers said evidence from the game is now being submitted to Guinness World Records for official verification as the world's longest hockey game.
