Galapagos is the home of the Marine iguanas (Amblyrhynchus cristatus). It is the world's only marine lizard species and can dive up to 20m deep foraging for their staple food: algae. This pictures shows two of them thermoregulating.

When Lava Lizards see Sea Lions sleeping in the sand, they run to them because they know that will be a free buffet: they are ready to eat all the flies that are trying to get some mineral from the tears of these lazy mammals! Is funny to see this situation because lizards easily climb to the body of sea lions to look for their meals. Sea Lions of course don’t care about this, first because they are deeply asleep and second because is a free cleaning for them.

I really miss the ocean. While Chris went scuba diving, I walked from Puerto Ayora to Galapagos Beach at Tortuga Bay. It's one of the most breathtaking beaches I've ever seen. You kind of can't beat this scenery, especially when you add in watching marine iguanas tumble through the surf on their way to land. Magic. #day41#awaywehaley
Some interesting facts about Blue-footed boobies😊
These tiny cutes are really aptly named, and males take great pride in their fabulous feet. During mating rituals, male birds show off their feet to prospective mates with a high-stepping strut. The bluer the feet, the more attractive the mate💙))
📍 LOCATION: North Seymour Island, Galapagos Islands, Ecuador
