Galapagos: Marine iguanas at Punta Estrada on Santa Cruz
Marine iguanas are quintessential Galapagos animals, dragon-looking and prehistoric. They are cold blooded and feed on algae, but after their body temperature drops in the cold ocean water, they come out on the black lava rocks on the shore and sun themselves to heat up. They blend in almost perfectly with the landscape. To the point where I almost stepped on them.
