I don’t know about you but I find this creature really amazing. Why is this animal not as famous as octopus or starfish or sea horse or any other sea creatures when it’s actually really stunning?
This is the marine iguana and maybe that’s why we don’t often hear about it because it’s found only on the Galápagos Islands. They don’t really live in the sea. They can spend only a limited time in cold water diving for algae. Afterwards it basks in the sun to warm up.
So when you happen to swim around the island with these Godzilla-like, don’t worry, they’re strictly vegetarian.
