Marine Iguanas!

Iguanas EVERYWHERE! Living in Calgary, AB, Canada I don’t see lizards or many reptiles at all. So when I got off the boat and saw SO MANY Marine Iguanas I think I squealed.

They are adorable and some of these guys do get a little fidgety if you get too close.

Also you can see their tracks in the sand, their tails are really heavy and leave a very distinctive trail behind.Marine Iguana Trail

Baby Albatross!

OMG this is a baby albatross:

Baby Albatross

So adorable! The babies almost look bigger than the adults because of the fluffy downy feathers. They are awkward and they squawk, the baby albatross is a living cartoon.

The adults are not far off and on land look very clumsy and kind of waddle like a weeble when they walk.

Side to side these birds are not made for land. Then as one waddles off the cliff, they really do just kind of throw themselves off, it takes flight and suddenly it is graceful and beautiful. Albatross are amazing fliers and in the air they are a sight to behold.
