The Galapagos marine iguana is an iguana found only on the Galápagos Islands that has the ability, unique among modern lizards, to live and forage in the sea, making it a marine reptile. The iguana can dive over 9 m (30 ft.) into the water. It mainly lives on the rocky Galápagos shore, but can also be spotted in marshes and mangrove beaches.
