The Galápagos Islands are renowned for its unique wildlife and due to the lack of natural predators you are able to get close to the animals and interact with them on their premisses.  The Marine Iguanas don’t have any natural enemies and are vegetarians so they are no threat to humans. 

Scientifically known as Amblyrhynchus Cristatus, this iguana is found only on the Galápagos Islands. It feeds on algae and can dive over 9 meters into the water. They are the world‘s only sea-going lizards and must warm its body in the sun after swimming in cold ocean waters, because reptiles do not have the ability to thermoregulate. The average lenght of an adult male is 1.3 meters and the weight up to 13kg.
