Sandy Sea Lion. They took little notice of us.

This poor little pup was very hungry.

Evolution is apparently still happening in the Galapagos,
sometimes with strange results.

Land Iguana. Luckily for us they are vegetarians.

Land Iguana. More handsome than his marine cousin.

Marine Iguanas. They love to congregate in
large groups and spit out excess salt water.

Marine Iguana. Not handsome creatures.

We saw many sea turtles, both from the boat
and while snorkeling.

We were fortunate to see this and 4 other tortises
during a walk on Isabela Island.
They do a lot of eating.

Which came first, totise or egg?

This little tortise is about 1 year old.
