Floreana Island


Floreana Island Galapagos Islands

Floreana Island Galapagos Islands
We're pulling into Floreana Island in these two top pictures. Land iguanas such as these are found throughout the Galapagos Islands. Although the iguanas on each island look a little different and are different in size, they are all the same kind. The iguanas on Espanola Island are the most colorful, with red and green patches. The red color comes from a kind of seaweed that blooms in the summer. This gray one I saw on Floreana Island just after we came into a bay and docked there. It didn't run away when we approached.
If you'd like to see a great video on these creatures please watch this:
