All the animals of the Galapagos Islands

In the end the Galapagos Islands more than surprised me. Usually I am not a fan of animal watching, at least I thought so until this trip. But once we arrived on San Cristobal and I saw my first sea-lions, I was totally hooked. There are animals everywhere and in such an abundance that sometimes you have to be careful not to step on them. The islands also offer such a variety that they rival almost with a zoo. The only difference is though that you can see all of the animals in their natural habitat. I loved it! So if you get any chance to travel to these islands do so. It is well worth your time and money. Yours, Pollybert

PS: And once again a big “Thank You” to Sylvia who caught most of this pictures with her awesome big camera! What an eye!

  1. The “not sure what kind of bird this is but it looked me straight in the eye” is a baby blue-footed booby! They only get the blue probably also the blues only later in life 😎
