When we were walking on the trail and we were in the
front of the group, our guide Mauricio picked up a snake, a real live snake. He felt kind
of slimy with bumps. He was the only snake that we saw in Galapagos.
sea lions a lot. Sea lions can go in water and on land. They breathe air and they eat
fish. I like sushi, too! The sea lion pups were so fun and they like to play. One of these
pups stuck his nose on my arm!

|I took a picture of that land iguana. That land iguana
was right on the trail. I really like land iguanas. I got a t-shirt with a land iguana on
it and I really really really like it.
|School Notes - Santa Fe is normally a very dry island.
In March of 1998, after an unusually strong and wet "El Niño", even Santa Fe
was very green. The abundance of vegetation proved a bonus for the native rice rats, who
flourished and were frequently visible from the trail.
