Flowers aren’t the only exotic beings in Hawaii: the animals are bountiful and intriguing. For example, I saw a donkey. I wouldn’t consider a donkey exotic or indigenous to Hawaii, but there it was; complete with a Donkey-crossing-sign.

Who thinks of these things? Hold a seahorse bred for aquariums so people don’t take them from the ocean. Zipline over a waterfall taller than Niagara Falls while going 45 mph. Take a submarine to see shipwrecks. Train manta rays to come to a specific area at night, because phytoplankton are attracted to light, and […]
