What Is This Creature?
One particular day, a man named Jeff Longo was walking around in the middle of the intense Florida heat when all of a sudden, he saw a tiny ball of fluff on the sidewalk.
Even though he had no clue what it was nor how to take care of it, he picked up, saw how it was doing and then vowed to nurse it back to health. Little did he know then that he had just found himself a new best friend.
Could It Survive The Heat?
The whole thing happened back in 2013, with the Florida native picking up the poor little creature after seeing just how much of a toll the unrelenting Florida heat had on it.
Helpless and Nearly Dead
Longo later recounted how helpless the little creature was and how it was already “half-dead” when the two first met. However, despite not knowing what exactly he saw, he made the decision to take it back with him to his home in St. Petersburg.
