I never realized bags of mulch could contain something so cute but for a Florida man, he got a surprise that he’ll never forget. When emptying his bag of mulch, he came across something strange. It turned out to be a little baby squirrel he found in a bag of mulch and it was all rolled up into a ball.
The fact that it was still alive was a miracle. He named the little guy ‘Zip’ and take a look at his amazing stages of growth in the following images.
A Florida man rescued a live newborn squirrel found in a bag of mulch. He named it ‘Zip.’
Day 3: Force-feeding Zip to help him grow strong and healthy.
2 weeks: Eating like a champ and growing nicely.
3 weeks: After a good feeding, he would roll up into a ball and take a nap.
4-5 weeks: His eyes slowly started opening for the first time!
6 weeks: Feeling playful and fully aware of his surroundings. I still can’t believe this cute squirrel was found in a bag of mulch!
All grown up! He’s really playful and hanging out waiting for a car ride.
This little guy is hungry!
Zip is happy as ever and so thankful to the Florida man who found a squirrel in the bag of mulch and helped him grow up into a playful and healthy squirrel.
Watch the video!
Zip definitely had a miraculous journey and I hope this story brightened your day. This is one amazing little creature that made a full recovery and now has a loving home thanks to a man with a heart of gold.
