The Spanish police have had to launch a sexual assault investigation after doctors on Tenerife discovered a dead turtle inside the private parts of a woman, according to local media reports. The anonymous woman had gone to a medical center in Arona in south Tenerife after she started to suffer from stomach pain. 

The doctors were able to diagnose the infection as one which is caused by reptiles. As reported by ABC, the unknown woman told the police who were investigating that she started to feel uneasy and odd after she had been partying with a group of British friends earlier. She allegedly shared that she chose to get help on Saturday and revealed to police and doctors that she had no idea how the turtle ended up in her vagina.

It is not even clear when the reptile died- whether it was dead before entering the woman's body or after. The size of the reptile has not been revealed either nor has the type of turtle. The Spanish press referred to the reptile as a tortuga which can mean either a turtle or a tortoise. El Mojon is the medical center located in the municipality of Arona in the south of the island where the woman went to receive treatment. 

The police sources were able to confirm the story and officers were asked to talk to the anonymous woman about the strange incident. As reported by DailyMail, a source shared, "This incident did happen and the reports are true. The woman does not know how the reptile ended up where it did and we don't either". 

One popular Spanish news agency El Mundo said, "A woman is assisted in Tenerife after a dead turtle is found in her vagina". While the Spanish daily ABC wrote, "A woman of British origin went to A&E at El Mojon in Arona, Tenerife, on Saturday because she felt pain in her private parts. The duty doctors inspected her and saw that her discomfort was due to the fact that the woman, who lives on the island, had a dead turtle inside her vagina which had caused a serious infection".
