Camouflage – Survival or Not

In the header, a beautiful Land Iguana – maybe my favourite animal on the Galápagos Islands. And below is my special companion – the Mockingbird.

”Blending in experts” are the birds – and other animals – on the Galápagos Islands. To me this is a magnificent treat to the eye.

Many of these animals are endemic, only to be found here. And many only on their own specific island. Darwin´s 13 species of finch are hard to tell apart, but they all have different bills related to where they live and what and how they eat.

Almost every island has its own Lava Lizard. Often difficult to find if you do not know what you are looking for… This is the pretty Galápagos Lava Lizard.

The Iguanas are everywhere, and some of them blend in so well that you easily can trip on one of them…

This Marine Iguana, you could say,  does the trick totally in his own, special way…

  1. that top photo of the iguana is just amazing, Ann Christine… when the photo loaded on the screen just now, that eye of the iguana is just so riveting, kinda 3D feel…
