Croc seems to have done major surgery on itself

A crocodile that appears to have been the victim of a spearing has managed to lose the object.

This is the crocodile that was featured Thursday morning in A.M. Costa Rica. The creature had some type of bar imbedded in his skull. It had been that way for several days.

No more. Angela and Rolf Sommer, who were seeking professional help for the injured animal, reported Thursday that the crocodile had freed itself from the spear and appears to be doing fine.

Except it has a hole in its head.

The crocodile makes its home in the Río Nosara on the far Pacific coast.

“I am sure people will like this photo with the good news,” said Sommer.
