Congrats isabela, To mark the 204th anniversary of Charles Darwin’s birth, we are featuring your Galapagos marine iguana as spotting of the day.

Darwin wrote of them in his Beagle Diary. “The black Lava rocks on the beach are frequented by large disgusting clumsy Lizards. They are as black as the porous rocks over which they crawl and seek their prey from the Sea. I call them 'imps of darkness’.” But he also saw evidence of his then-developing theory of evolution in the iguanas, writing, “They assuredly well become the land they inhabit.”
