Photograph by @thomaspeschak Marine Iguanas can dive to depths of over 30 feet (10m) and hold their breath for more than 30 minutes. These iconic reptiles are only able to spend a few hours a day in the ocean grazing algae for sustenance. In the western Galápagos the water is simply too cold for longer underwater excursions by a cold blooded reptile. For more photographs of these ocean going Godzilla lookalikes please #followme @thomaspeschak Shot on assignment for @natgeo magazine for the June 2017 story on climate change and the Galápagos Islands. @natgeocreative In collaboration with @darwinfound #paulmangellfoundation #galapagosnationalpark @pelayosalinas
