Marine Iguana

This is the marine iguana found in the Galapagos. Darwin repeatedly threw this creature into the ocean because he was fascinated with its behavior. He found that even though this animal had adapted to the water it felt more comfortable on land. He came to this conclusion, because every time he threw it into the ocean it would repeatedly swim back on land knowing that it would be thrown back into the ocean.

Charles Robert Darwin, FRS, was an English naturalist. He established that all species of life have descended over time from common ancestors, and proposed the scientific theory that this branching pattern of evolution resulted from a process that he called natural selection, in which the struggle for a existent similar effect to the artificial effect involved in selective breeding. Darwin published his theory of evolution with compelling evidence in his 1859 book On The Origin Of Species.
