The Shave Ice Gekko

He didn't lower our car insurance, but this cute gekko was ready to lap up any sugary drips from our shave ice on Kauai. Here he is peeking up through a crack in the painted picnic table at the shave ice stand:Shave Ice Gekko, KauaiHere's a close-up. Isn't he the epitome of cuteness?Shave Ice Gekko, close-upShave Ice is the Hawaiian version of a snow cone. Ours were huge and it took two people to eat one. Here's a picture of shave ice that I gleaned from the web:When some shave ice would fall off our cone and melt on the table, little gekkos came up through the cracks and licked up the puddles. So cute!

Now, this post is cool, very cool. Who would ever have thought to watch for gekkos who like to lick up shave ice puddles? This is what I love about reading everyone's experiences--you never know what sort of neat stuff you're going to experience vicariously :) What a great vacation!

I have to admit, I'm not fond of lizards, but it does seem, after reading your post, they seem to have a bit of personality. I must reconsider.

I like your gecko and hope that your re-entry to the real world upon returning home went well.
