Galapagos - Sea Lions, Iguanas and Land Turtles 
Our group gathers in the Highlands of Santa Cruz Island with our guide, Farie (left) to view the giant land tortoises.  The guides communicate the wanderings of the turtles.  You are almost guaranteed a sighting.  We saw 4 of these enormous animals on our hike. 
Lava lizards are as common as Florida cameleonsl.
Land iguanas are quite prevalent on Plazas Island.
This iguana is moulting, shedding it's skin.
Plazas Island is the home to a colony of sea lions.
