About the Galapagos Marine Iguana
The Galapagos marine iguana (Amblyrhynchus cristatus) has the unusual ability to live in the sea. It dives into the water at tidepools and the water's edge to forage for algae. It is found only in the Galapagos Island chain. It is generally black to deep dark green in color to help absorb heat after returning from a dive in the cold ocean waters. An adult Galapagos marine iguana is about 2-3 feet long and is not a particularly fast runner. It is therefore vulnerable to dogs and cats which often prey on it. The marine iguana is plentiful and not considered endangered like many species in the area.
