Rare Hybrid Iguana

On today's boat trip we saw several new species -- swallow-tail gulls (with chicks), nazca boobies, a new species of land iguana, and this extremely rare hybrid between a land iguana and a marine iguana, found only on South Plazas Island where we were hiking. We saw this iguana take a big bite of the cactus. We also saw two normal land iguanas facing off over territory -- they shake their heads and swell their bellies.
