Iguana and Crab, Galápagos Islands

Photograph and caption by Nancy Leigh

A brilliant colored Sally Lightfoot crab scuttles up a marine iguana's back on Fernandina Island in the Galápagos. The lizards are so famously homely that even Charles Darwin piled on, describing them as "hideous looking" and "most disgusting." This photo was submitted to the 2015 Traveler Photo Contest.
