A little girl thought that she had found a Cheeto on the ground but it ended up being a beautiful, little seahorse in need of help. See video…
TheChive.com says that a little girl found what she thought to be a Cheeto on the ground but it turned out to be a seahorse! It was bright orange like a Cheeto because this type of seahorse changes its color to blend into their environment. It was probably on an orange coral when a seagull picked it up but then dropped it on the ground where it was found by the little girl.
The little girl dropped the seahorse into a bucket of water and showed her mom who then took it to the Clearwater Marine Aquarium. It was a female seahorse and they named her “Cheeto” and nursed her back to health.

An expert said: “It’s amazing because all of the things happened at the exact right time and probably only in a two-minute window for her to have survived.”
“Cheeto” is so lucky that the little girl found her and is NOW back swimming in the ocean.
