Santa Cruz Lava Lizard (male)

Microlophus indefatigabilis


The Santa Cruz Lava Lizard (Microlophus indefatigabilis) is a species of lava lizard endemic to the Galapagos island of Santa Cruz. I believe these pictures are all males.


Very hard to take pictures of as they scatter about the walking paths very quickly!

No species ID suggestions

Thanks Karen! Most of the time I didn't have the patience to wait until they became still for photographing!
