The Galapagos have thousands of iguanas…and they vary from island to island. These are Marine Iguanas, who love to swim in salt water. It’s amazing how graceful they are underwater, like an eel. Other than swimming, they love to bask on the volcanic rock with salt spray nearby. You literally have to avoid stepping on them!
The iguana in the top photo snorted salt water all over the camera lens right after the photo. The lower photo is Mike with at least a dozen iguanas. Toward dusk, they group together for warmth and sleep in a huge iguana pile.
Hi Sue and Mike,
What a dream trip. I can’t wait to hear more about it. I love the birds and all other wildlife. Amazing. All the best. Janie
Love the pictures. What a dream trip. I especially love the birds….sigh….someday.
