There are two species of land iguana found in the Galapagos; this species Conolophus subcristatus, is found on six islands and Conolophus pallidus is found only on Santa Fe (2). This species is very large, growing to lengths of over a meter (2). The short head is blunt and the back legs are thick and powerful, with long sharp claws on the toes (4). It is yellowish in colour with blotches of white, black, rust and brown (5) and a row of spines passes along the centre of the neck and back (4).
