Galapagos Islands became a place you and I could visit, average men and women had never really been exposed to wildlife collectivity at every corner like one is during a Galapagos cruise. Of course, some can consider pigeons in a square, “wildlife collectivity”, but once you take a tour of the Galapagos Islands, you’ll know the difference!
Today, people cruise the Galapagos and see a thousand iguanas sprawled out on a beach or walk into a colony of a hundred frigatebirds… it’s quite the experience. Everywhere you look, the given species will be… well, everywhere! To the point that your eyes can’t actually see all the individuals, even when they are right in front of you… you notice a bird to your left because it twitched, but straight center, at almost no distance, a sudden movement forces you to look at another one that was closer and even more obvious than the other twenty located in your immediate field of vision. It is quite a strange sensation and it happens a lot in the Galapagos Islands.
It’s not your usual squirrels on a tree, and as I mentioned before, it’s scarcely like the pigeon flocks of our modern world. These creatures act as if they didn’t see you. You could be a tree, a cactus for that matter, they don’t care. Some do care, but they are not your ordinary pigeons… they may be colonies of large mammals like sea lions that come in dozens, or of course, nesting boobies that squawk straight at you!
Animals in the Galapagos come in numbers. Are you ready to count your way through your Galapagos tour!
