"I swallow fishes, turtles, frogs, water snakes alive by the dozens. I keep them not more than 2 hours in my stomach, just as Jonah in the whale, then I return them alive, even more alive than ever in their respective aquariums."
Mac Norton (1876 - 1953), born Claude Delair in Lyon, France in 1876 did a regurgitation act called "The Human Aquarium." He was mentioned by Houdini in his book Miracle Mongers And Their Methods, and by Ricky Jay.
