Footprints #2 (& Quiz!)

by Liz June. 25, 2008 3122 views

A few more “footprints” images. Can you guess what creature left the prints you see in photo #3? Sorry, it's a lousy scan, but here's a hint - the tracks were made by a land dwelling creature not usually associated with water, who swims into the sea for food. Ok, I'll make it easier, this photo was shot in the Galapagos Islands. Any ideas?

These prints were probably made by a seagull or other waterbird with webbed feet.

;)

Boy, you guys are so smart! #3 is a marine iguana, a variety of iguana found only in the Galapagos Islands. Their skin is black instead of green (on one island they have reddish blotches on the black), and while they live on land they swim into the water to feed on algae. Then they come sit on shore in the sun to warm back up, and sneeze out the salt they ingested with the algae. Gross! But they're really cool critters. I'll hunt up a photo or two to post.
