||Galapagos Islands, Charles Darwin
1 The marine iguana is found only on the Galapagos Islands. Charles Darwin described it as "a hideous-looking creature of a dirty black color, stupid and sluggish in its movements."
2 Are marine iguanas really as Darwin described? Well, to be fair, marine iguanas are not pretty. But, Darwin's opinion of their low intelligence and clumsiness is unjustly harsh.
3 Like all reptiles, marine iguanas have a body covering of scales. They have pointy spines running from the top of their heads, down along their backs, to the base of their tails. Their snouts are blunt. Their faces are white. The light color on their faces is not the color of their scales. Instead, it is the result of excessive salts expelled from the salt glands near their nostrils.
