Galápagos Islands, Ecuador
Galapagos Marine Iguana, and FriendOne of my favorite animals on the Galapagos was the marine iguana. They're smelly, gross (they rocket salt water out of their nostrils), and prehistoric looking, but so amazing! We got to swim with them in the ocean and see piles of them on land. This one had a little buddy perched atop his head.
