在South Plaza island這個非常小的島上，長了很多的仙人掌，只要你走近一點，仔細一看，幾乎每棵仙人掌下都有一隻加拉巴戈陸鬣蜥!
Everyone comes to the Galapagos for a reason. For me, it is obvious that I come here because the wild animals that show absolutely no fear for human beings! These islands, where Charles Darwin studied the law of evolution, until today, is still the best showcase for evolution.
South Plaza island is a very small island where a lot of cactus grow. If you look closer, each cactus has a Galapagos land iguana living underneath!
Land iguanas are solitary animals who also defense their territories very strongly. You seldom see two land igua
nas living at the same cactus.
However, about 8-9 years ago, a lot of cactus on this island died because of the drought and the land iguanas were short of food supply. As a result... some of these vegetarian land iguanas have evolved and became omnivores. Those who cannot find themselves a cactus go to the rockeries and feed on the sea lion poos. Today, we even witness a land iguana eating the dead body of a bird... this is clearly evidence of how these animals are still evolving on the island.
