A tiny seahorse escaped death and is now recovering at Clearwater Marine Aquarium, thanks to a little girl and her mother.

According to the aquarium, the girl and her mother were on Indian Shores Beach when they saw a seagull fly by with that looked like a Cheeto in its mouth. The bird dropped the object near the girl, who saw that it was a seahorse.

The girl put the seahorse in a bucket and showed it to her mom, who called the aquarium for help.

A volunteer went to the beach and brought the seahorse back to the aquarium for treatment. It is now doing well, officials said.

The aquarium has set up a live cam of Cheeto's tank.
