I've never seen one with color on the chin like that.

They all love their mud wallows, those galaps do.

What a wonderful thread. I had the pleasure of visiting the Galapagos island 3 years prior and the flora and fauna was amazing. I would love to share some of my encounters w these magnificent creatures.
