update:

Meet "Baby Hercules." He was found the 30th of September (2009) by *badou at the beach in Northern Greece. The waves in the ocean were swashing him back and forward and he was almost drowned. She doesn't know how many hours he was in the sea.

*badou was certain he was dead, but she picked him up and brought him to safety... after lots of warm sweet water showers and lots of TLC... the third day after a tiny drop of milk he suddenly opened his eyes and started to move his legs.

Now he's enjoying milk, fresh vegetable juice and some very small pieces of different herbs.

With time (two weeks) he's become energetic and he tries to get out of his little basket and he enjoys sun bathing and sleeping many hours. He props his head up with great curiosity about all the things around him.

thanks to *badou for the photo, and =JaninaZ for help with the writing.

wish him luck as he needs to gain some weight for that winter sleep that's coming soon!

good luck "Baby Hercules!"
