Cute Photo of Marine Iguana with Lava Lizard

This candid photo of a marine iguana sharing a moment with a lava lizard, taken on our popular Galapagos photo tour, showcases the islands’ diverse and coexisting species.

Lava lizards are the most common reptile in the Galapagos Islands. They’re famous for intimidating their romantic rivals with aggressive push-ups. They often climb on marine iguanas, searching for bugs to eat. This interaction captures the essence of coexistence in the Galapagos.

But the spectrum of wildlife extends far beyond these reptilian encounters. The baby Galapagos penguin, with its endearing qualities, and the Galapagos greater flamingo, with its elegant stature and striking color, are just a couple of the wonders that await you in the Galapagos. When you join one of our tours you’ll have the rare opportunity to capture many of the various species that make this archipelago a living laboratory for evolutionary biology.
