Here’s another marine iguana from the Galapagos Islands. This photo was taken on La Fe, a tiny little place that we visited as a day trip while staying at a camp on the nearby, larger island of Santa Cruz. This was a great little excursion, as we had the island completely to ourselves. As I mentioned in an earlier post — although marine iguanas are present on virtually every island in the Galapagos archipelago, they have evolved slightly differently on each. On La Fe, they definitely had more of an orange appearance to their skin. This one looks like it’s the only individual around, but they were virtually all over the place, draped lazily over the volcanic rocks that fringed the island.
