Galápagos marine iguanas

Amblyrhynchus cristatus


While Galápagos marine iguanas are sunning themselves on a rock overhanging a shallow seawater inlet, several whitetip reef sharks are resting below them. In the video, one can see another shark is cruising past towards the end of the footage. The animals were spotted on Islote Tintoreras.
