Amblyrhynchus – Marine iguana

Despite looking like miniature dragons, they eat grass

The capacity of marine iguanas to forage in shallow marine areas makes them the most famous. They consume marine algae grown on rocky shorelines and underwater since they are herbivores.

Marine iguanas are mostly terrestrial animals, even though they feed in the water. They are frequently seen warming up in the sun.

Humans’ introduction of cats and dogs has significantly reduced the population of marine iguanas because they prey on the young, ill-equipped to defend themselves against powerful land predators. Additionally, the issues on the islands have gotten much worse due to increased human activity, which demands immediate attention.
