Episode Summary

Dragons still walk the Earth in the remote islands of the Galapagos. This is the only place where iguanas - fascinating prehistoric reptiles - swarm both land and sea. Witness the incredible journey of a land iguana compelled to climb into the crater of an active volcano to lay her eggs. Dive in the rough Pacific Ocean with marine iguanas foraging for food - along with hungry pelicans, penguins, and dolphins. They must evade a cast of predators as stealthy as the Galapagos snake and as swift as the Galapagos hawk. These volcanic islands showcase creatures and behaviors seen nowhere else on Earth. Marvel at the unique strategies for survival that could only have been created in the Galapagos.moreless
