Marine Iguana and Sally Lightfoot Crab, Isabela Island, Galapagos

Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by Linda Lipkin

Just after a light, late-day downpour, I was walking around lava formations protecting the harbor in la Puerto Villamil, hoping to see some white-tipped reef sharks and Galapagos penguins. Instead, there were dozens of these Marine Iguanas and their pals (or dinner?) the amazingly-colored Sally Lightfoot crabs.

Location: Isabela Island, Galapagos
