Young pups are extremely playful & curious about the world around them. Anything that moves is fair game, & they especially seem to enjoy chasing marine iguanas.
Mosquera island, Galapagos
katmc2020, yes they are indeed endangered, but mainly because they only exist in the comparatively small area of the Galapagos Isles. Their populations are usually stable & they can be found on pretty much all of the islands & rocky outcrops. However, when major natural events like El Nino occur (usually about every 7 years) it can affect the population. The 1997 El Nino was particularly severe & it is estimated none of the pups born that year survived.
Their endangered this is a important discovery! :•
The iguana didn't seem to appreciate it much, Ava!
