Microlophus indefatigabilis — Santa Cruz Lava Lizard
This species was formerly considered part of Microlophus albemarlensis, which is now restricted to Isabela island and its islets.
We first encountered M. indefatigabilis on the small island of South Plaza, off the coast of Santa Cruz, where they competed for our attention with many large iguanas.
We were on Baltra just long enough to get from the dock to a bus to the airport, but that was long enough to see my last Galápagos lava lizard.
