Little Green Maraschino Cherry Lover

A Madagascar Salamander checks out the maraschino cherry left on a coaster for him (her?) at a local bar in the village of Kona, Kauai, Hawaii. The little sugar-loving critters are cute but not native, like many other flora and fauna found on the islands. Instead, it was brought here from its namesake island off the coast of Africa where sweet fruit is plentiful, I suppose.
