Galapagos Adventure, June 2001
Wednesday, June 6
AM: Sante Fe (also known as Barrington Island)
PM: South Plaza Island, iguanas, batchelor seals, birds
Wednesday, we started at Sante Fe or Barrington Is. It had a beautiful bay and a nice hike. In the afternoon, we moved to South Plaza Is. which is populated by lots of iguanas and various birds.
Here's Fred, a land iguana that Richard has noted living under the same cactus for over a dozen years. Check out that smile! These ignuanas eat the cactus leaves, but if they can't reach them, they have to wait for them to fall.
|These land iguanas live in burrows which they can dig themselves or find under rocks. Look carefully and you'll see an iguana under the rock.|
|Here's an unusual picture - a pile or marine iguanas with a land iguana under them. The yellow color is typical of the land iguanas of South Plaza.|
|As we pulled out of the harbor between North and South plaza to head to our next stop, the sunset behind us was georgeous!|
Next stop - Darwin Bay on Genovesa or Tower Is.
