A man in Florida apparently found a newborn baby squirrel in a bag of mulch.

The photo of the baby squirrel was posted on Reddit by user Nadtacular.

“These were not bags of mulch you buy in a store. These were very large bags of mulch that were not compressed like you find in the store. As you can see in the background of the first picture, we’re talking an immense amount of mulch,” the user wrote.

The squirrel, which was named Zip, took around four weeks just to open up its eyes. The Redditor plans on raising the squirrel.

“They keep their eyes closed for about 5 weeks from birth, and sleep 98% of that 5 weeks,” the user wrote.
