What This Man Found in a Bag of Mulch Is a Miracle

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.
