REPTILIAN TUESDAY # 65
We’re off to some of the most famous islands on planet earth; where Charles Darwin himself discovered and honed his theory of evolution! Today’s reptile isn’t what most would call pretty, but man are they cool! So let’s head out to meet…
MEET THE MARINE IGUANA!

- Marine Iguanas colors vary by the island they live on.
- They have large flat tails to help them swim along the rocky coasts.
- Marine Iguanas have razor sharp teeth to eat seaweed and algae.
- Marine iguanas sneeze to get rid of excess salt.

Marine Iguanas may be one of our most favorite animal of all times! They are so prehistoric looking and wonderful! Plus what could be cooler than having the ability to sneeze salt?
