Some Spectacular Footage of Hungry Marine Iguanas at the Galapagos Islands in the Water

People tend to think of lizards in general as land animals, but the marine iguanas in this video manage to blur the boundaries between land and sea animals fairly effectively. They have fins like eels, but they seem to look like iguanas in every other way. In the video, viewers will see the marine iguanas gnawing at things growing on the underwater rocks. From there, they will start swimming up to the surface again for air.

The marine iguanas seem to be poor swimmers who are much better at crawling than swimming, which makes sense for creatures who seem to be from two worlds at once. The background music for the video is nefarious, which underscores the creepy appearance of the marine iguanas to most people watching. People should please SHARE this video on Facebook, since it is very interesting to watch, and it manages to accomplish quite a lot without any dialogue or additional information.
