Can't Leave the Galapagos Without Paying Tribute to....

The Iguana!!!

Marine Iguana, Galapagos Islands, Ecuador

"Isn't he a handsome dude???

Land Iguana, Galapagos Islands, Ecuador

The Land Iguana has a different coloring and isn't quite as prolific...

A whole heap of Marine Iguanas!!!

Group Hug!!!


  1. I adore iguanas! Such great shots.

  2. Well then, LadyFi, you MUST go to the Galapagos!!! The largest population of marine Iguanas are on the Isla Fernandina!!! And pretty much on every island, you have to watch your step...the rock you think you're stepping on might just be an Iguana!!!

  3. I love iguanas. These are wonderful pictures! Little dinosaurs.

  4. Good Timing PA!!!

    Well then Petrea, you and LadyFi ought to head on down to the Galapagos!!! You'll find plenty of Iguanas there!!!

  5. I've only seen them wild in Cozumel (probably just a relative of these?), and I could watch them forever. There's something about those hands and the way they hug each other.

  6. I think your photos bring out their Dickensian expressions.

  7. They are pretty amazing Hiker...although I can't say they're one of my favs on this trip...and after seeing literally thousands and almost stepping on a few hundred...I'm not so enthralled...but they are pretty interesting to photograph...and I found their piling up on each other rather interesting!!!
