    Flamingo

    by Roadquill Written Jan 15, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: There are several salt water ponds that attract the Pink Flamingos. They start out white, but then adapt the pink color from the carotenoid proteins in the crustaceans and other critters they eat.

    Favorite thing: The male Frigate Bird is famous for his red, inflatable throat pouch. He will puff it up and stay in place for hours attempting to attract a female frigate bird.

    Iguanas

    by RACCOON1 Updated May 5, 2004

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Iguanas are everywhere . You get used to them within 15 minutes, even the big ones . They sit on rocks that no human
    would really walk on so there is no conflict of interest.

    Galapagos animals

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fondest memory: I just took the picture, because the turtle next to me has my number. 27. :))
    Every turtle gets a number with a different colour. (In order to get the grown turtles back on the right island)
