Description:

No one has ever successfully kept these ultra-specialized lizards outside their native turf. They are dependent on living in a unique maritime habitat and eating algae in the ocean that can’t be duplicated in a captive situation. They actually dive beneath the surface to rasp algae from rocks – the sole food item that sustains them. Plan a visit to the Galapagos Islands some time in your life if you wish to see these living dinosaurs.
