This week, in a post created specifically for this challenge, show usย community, and interpret it any way you please!

And this is how we interpreted it…..

A community of marine iguanas on the Galapagos Islands
A community of marine iguanas on the Galapagos Islands
And this was a close knit community

      Thanks! The Galapagos is just incredible – you can get so close to the animals!

      Every time we look at that photo. It makes us laugh at how they are all hugging! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I never heard of marine iguanas. What cool photos.

    Here is my entry for this weekโ€™s challenge: Community (and Sub-communities)

      Yes – marine iguanas are only found on the Galapagos! The only iguanas that can submerge and dive for algae in rocks in the ocean. Fascinating creatures ๐Ÿ™‚
      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your entry!

        And thank you for stopping by. Do they eat anything but algae? I would have figured them as insect eaters, like I imagine their cousins are (I think). ๐Ÿ™‚

          Not entirely sure – we were under the impression that algae was all they ate, they are quite unique reptiles! But we are no experts ๐Ÿ™‚ We can’t remember what else our naturalist guides from the Galapagos had told us about them *sheepish* – we might need to brush up by googling it ๐Ÿ˜‰

    They look intimidating. How big are they?

      wisemonkeysabroad responded:
      December 14, 2013 at 8:22 am

      They range in size but on average the body appeared to be similar to land iguanas. They were not aggressive or anything, in fact they would scurry away as you approach!
      Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

    I hadn’t realised there were so many of them either! Great take ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thank you!! They are all over the islands ๐Ÿ™‚

    Wow, there are so many of them! Is it always like that or do they gather on a special time of year or during the day?

      wisemonkeysabroad responded:
      December 14, 2013 at 7:34 am

      Always clustered but not as much as the hugging! Every day they soak up the sun because they need to increase their body temperature.

        Well, nice life soaking up the sun all day long! ๐Ÿ™‚
