        Galapagos Marine Iguana | Big Pacific: Voracious

        The Galapagos Islands are home to the only marine iguanas in the world, cold-blooded specimens uniquely adapted to thrive in the ocean. The marine iguana can hold its breath up to an hour while searching the ocean for algae and seaweed. A flattened tail, sharp claws, and short snout allow the iguana to feed underwater, a rare behavior among reptiles. To filter out the excess salt it inevitably ingests while foraging in the ocean, all the iguana has to do is sneeze.
