Footage from a Ring doorbell showed the sweet moment a man who appeared to be a delivery driver spotted a baby turtle and showed it to the camera after dropping off packages.
Malia shared video on his account, @maliapopiawhere it has been viewed over 2 million times and has delighted other TikTok users.
A blog post published by the National Wildlife Federation describes a few ways owners can keep baby turtles safe while they live in their yard.
Some of these tips include making sure the yard has vegetation to protect baby turtles from predators, not using pesticides, and checking the area before mowing the lawn.
“Do a quick sweep of your lawn before starting the engine to look for baby (or adult) turtles and other small wildlife that can’t outrun your mower,” the article says.
The Virginia Wildlife Center also advised against moving the turtle to a “better place.”
“Turtles have small home territories and should be left where they are,” the agency noted.
In the clip, the man drops off a few packages and turns to cross the lawn towards a delivery truck. He stopped and bent down to pick something up.
The man held up what he found from a distance and said he “found a baby turtle” before heading back to the front door.
He introduced the turtle to the camera smiling, then turned and walked towards the truck.
The delivery man’s reaction to seeing the little turtle charmed viewers who expressed their delight in the comments section.
“This is the cutest thing I’ve seen all week,” one viewer wrote.
“OK but why did I cry when he had fun with the turtle,” another comment read.
One viewer wrote, “I needed this wholesome content in my feed. Thank you!”
A TikToker remarked on the man’s reaction to finding the little turtle.
“I love seeing adults make the same moves kids do when they’re excited about something,” they wrote.
Newsweek has contacted Malia for comment.
In addition to the man finding a baby turtle in a yard, security cameras managed to capture other interesting and eerie moments, such as the moment a bear is seen opening a freezer in a garage and eat $600 worth of meat.
A video, which has gone viral on TikTok, shows a curious dog pressing a doorbell with its muzzle.
Another video, which was reposted on Reddit, showed two pigs fighting off a bear that had broken into their enclosure.
