SANTA CRUZ ISLAND, GALAPAGOS, ECUADOR - MAY 3, 2006: The claw of a marine iguana (amblyrhynchus criastus) stands out against a lava rock on Santa Cruz Island in the Galapagos, Ecuador. This specie of iguana is unique to the Galapagos, and was described by Charles Darwin as hideous. The iguanas have suffered population declines in recent years due to an infestation of feral cats which prey on the young iguanas. (Photo by Eric Rorer/Aurora)
