The Marine Iguana

The second of the covers:  The Marine Iguana

 

Galapagos has two species of lizard. One is the land iguana and the other is the marine iguana.

Extract from Darwin’s Diary:

“It is a hideous-looking creature, of a dirty black colour, stupid and sluggish in its movements…there were some even four feet long…Their limbs and strong claws are admirably adapted for crawling over rugged lava rocks.”
