Thomas Martin McShane, Conolophus Pallidus (ANIMALS 2024)

This giant land iguana, only found in one place on the planet, the small island of Santa Fe in the Galapagos Islands was more than happy to pose for this photograph. Of course, the large lizards can often be found resting like this on a warm rock but always with one eye on their surroundings.
