Iguanamania in the Galapagos!

May 2008
The endemic Galapagos marine iguana (Amblyrhynchus cristatus) on Punta Espinosa on Fernandina Island in the Galapagos Island Archipelago, Ecuador.
Reflected sunrise light on a group of resting marine iguanas in calm waters near Cerro Dragon (dragon hill) on Santa Cruz Island, Galapagos.
Sunset over a group of marine iguanas gathered together to absorb the sun's heat on black lava.
This iguana is unique among all iguanas worldwide to feed exclusively underwater on algae.
Watching an iguana forage in the ocean is a unique experience indeed!
