Welcome to the Galapagos Islands, home of many unique animals!
The Galapagos Tortoise is the largest tortoise in the world! They weigh about 400 pounds!
They are the inspiration for the Islands name since "Galapago" means "tortoise" in Spanish!
Marine Iguanas are the only sea-going lizard in the world and can only be found in the Galapagos Islands!
They have many adaptations including long-curved claws that help them hang onto rock and avoid being swept away by strong currents!
If we continue to care for the Galapagos Islands, it will stay an example of preservation for other places to look at!
