Marine Iguanas can dive to depths of over 30 feet (10m) and hold their breath for up to 30 minutes. These iconic reptiles are only able to spend a few hours a day in the ocean grazing algae for sustenance. In the western Galápagos the water is simply too cold for longer underwater excursions by a cold blooded reptile. The surgeonfish surrounding the iguana also graze on algae, but can feed all day long without freezing to death. Shot on assignment for @natgeo magazine for the June 2017 story on climate change and the Galápagos Islands.

Of all the animals found in the #galapagos , this is the one #species we could watch all day long. @saracoral85 #baby #sealion #onairplanemode #olympus

Giant tortoises can be found only in two places on earth. The #galapagos is one of them. In the 16th century it was estimated there were over 250k tortoises on the islands and due to exploitation and use for oil, food, there were only around 3,000 left in the 1970s. These #tortoises are being protected and breeding efforts been taking place here in the Galapagos to increase the numbers. Efforts have risen the numbers of tortoises to around 20k now. #turtleday #onairplanemode #worldturtleday #olympus
Wow that #silkyshark looks tiny next to the massive #whaleshark !! Silkies use the whale shark to rub themselves against it, most likely to remove skin parasites. #amazing #behaviour isn't it? #Repost @thomaspeschak (@get_repost ) ・・・ The waters around the northern Galápagos Islands of Wolf and Darwin are one of few places in the world where mature adult whale sharks make regular seasonal appearances. This 6-8 foot silky shark is dwarfed by a giant 30 + foot female. Photographing theses giant sharks is difficult, the currents are ripping and they swim incredibly fast and show little curiosity for people.
