He Saved A Tiny Animal, But Had No Idea What It Actually Was.
This tiny newborn was by itself on the side of the road on a extremely hot day in St. Petersburg, Florida. It seemed the tiny animal got separated from her family.
Then guy that found it, Jeff Longo took to Reddit to ask for advice how to nurse the tiny animal back to health.
Jeff was told the critter would die after he posted some photos online.
Instead, Jeff researched for ways to help his new friend get healthy and strong.
Jeff made the nocturnal animal baby bottles with puppy formula.
To make sure the creature would be eating, Jeff took it to work with him everyday.
He named her Lady Biscuit. Turns out the small animal is a flying squirrel.
Lady Biscuit has quickly become part of the family. The dogs love her but Jeff makes sure he is around at all times, just to be safe. He knows they would never hurt her, but they are so big and she is so small, they could accidentally squish her.
“She has a big cage and semi free reign of the house when I’m available to supervise,” says Jeff.
Jeff admits Lady Biscuit would not survive in the wild now.
Although, it doesn’t seem to bother Lady Biscuits she is leading a domesticated life.
Flying squirrels are nocturnal animals who chirp like birds.
They live in trees in the wild. In the home though, Lady Biscuit has turned Jeff into her own personal tree.
“She runs around me like I’m a big tree…then jumps on things and then jumps back, gets excited, starts chirping, rinse, and repeat,” explains Jeff.
