Galapagos Iguanas – Land Iguana Sunbathing

The Galapagos land iguana is a species of lizard and grows to a length of three to five feet with a body weight of up to twenty-five pounds, depending upon which island they are from. Being cold-blooded, they absorb heat from the sun by basking on volcanic rock, and at night sleep in burrows to conserve their body heat.
