Conolophus pallidus — Santa Fe Land Iguana
This potato sack of a lizard looked like it was too obese to move, but when a much smaller iguana stumbled into its territory, it chased the intruder off in an instant.
On our second trip to the Galápages, we visited Santa Fe in the late afternoon, and both of the iguanas we came across seem to have called it quits for the day.
