ANIMALS & WILDLIFE
Adaptation, evolution, endemism and fearlessness are probably the concepts that best describe the only animals that complement the natural magic of the Galapagos Islands. The species that by chance were carried by ocean or air currents, managed to reach these isolated and remote islands, facing a very different and extreme environment. So, they had to adapt and evolve rapidly. Without large land predators on these remote islands, the animals lost their fear of being preyed upon. The result is a meekness difficult to find in wild species. The truly unique and fascinating forms and behaviors of these amazing species cannot be found anywhere else. They were, in fact, Charles Darwin’s inspiration for his Theory of Evolution.
