Sally Lightfoot Crab Conversing with Marine Iguana

Sally Lightfoot Crab and Marine Iguana, La Fe Island, Galapagos Islands, EcuadorLast week I posted a stingray from La Fe Island in the Galapagos. Here are two more of the diminutive island’s locals — a Sally Lightfoot crab having a bit of a conversation with a marine iguana. Both of these species can be found in abundance on pretty much all of the islands in the Galapagos Archipelago.
