Santa Cruz Lava Lizard (male)

Microlophus indefatigabilis

Description:

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.

Notes:

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

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