Land Iguana on Santa Fe Island, The Galapagos

Land Iguana - Santa Fe Island

I thoroughly enjoyed getting close enough to a few Ground Iguanas to get representative photographs of a few of them.

This photo was taken on a muddy hike around Santa Fe Island. That is a little unfair, as only portions of the trail were muddy. It would be a mud to remember, though.

This species has existed on the islands for over 4 million years. It certainly doesn’t look as though there has been much change in the species’ appearance. It’s very much a prehistoric look, I think.
