Yummm… porpoise and rice!
Japanese animal shelter owner Ryo Taira carried the baby animal more than a mile back to the sea.
"I was not sure whether what I was doing was the right thing to do," Ryo admited, "but when I saw it swimming away into the ocean, I felt glad,"
We are so glad this little one was saved!

Iconic actor Dick Van Dyke recently revealed that while he was longboarding at the beach one day, he fell asleep and woke up to find himself drifting out to sea!
However, he was lucky enough to get some unexpected help!
"I woke up out of sight of land… and I started paddling with the swells and I started seeing fins swimming around me and I thought, 'I'm dead!' They turned out to be porpoises [and] they pushed me all the way to shore. I'm not kidding."
That's seriously unbelievable!
We guess we forget that animals sometimes just innately understand things that we wouldn't expect them to - like someone in need of help!
Hopefully that will teach him to stick closer to shore - or to not nap in the ocean! LOLz!
