A Florida man opened a new bag of mulch and, to his surprise, he found a baby squirrel inside.  We found the man on Reddit, where he is known by the handle “Nadtacular,” but now the Internet is starting to know him because of his compassion.  The baby squirrel appeared to be only days old when he found it.  It was so young, he initially mistook it for a mouse or rat.  But he decided to take care of it, and lucky for us, document his its development.

When he cut open the bag, this little guy fell out…

To keep it alive, he had to force feed the little fellow…

But after 2 weeks, he was eating like a champ…

By week 3, this is how he’d look after a satisfying meal…

Somewhere between weeks 4 and 5 his eyes finally opened…

By the 5th week, he was fully aware…

And getting playful…

It seemed this growing boy was always hungry…

“C’mon, just one more blueberry…”

He loves to bask in the sunlight…

As you can see from the photographs, a bond developed between the man and the squirrel, which he named “Zip.”  There is no definitive answer to how baby Zip found its way into the bag of mulch, but it’s safe to say Zip appears to be enjoying his new home.  It’s also safe to say that this man’s selfless act has restored our hope in humanity.  Way to go!
