The Quiz: Do you know the rare talent of the Galápagos marine iguana?
A It can count
B It can swim
C It can build a shelter
Marine iguanas don’t swim to catch fish, they’re after the algae that grows on rocks in the sea. They aren’t the only lizards that are comfortable in water. The basilisk lizard (or Jesus lizard) can run across water to escape predators. The Chinese water dragon is another adept swimmer.
The correct answer to this quiz is It can swim.
