A Galapagos Land Iguana

La Cumbre volcano on uninhabited Fernandina Island, one of the Galapagos Islands, began erupting on Saturday after nearly fours of inactivity. While the volcano is not a threat to inhabitants on nearby Isabela Island, it is a threat to the unique wildlife of the Galapagos.  Charles Darwin visited the Galapagos during his voyage on the HMS Beagle and its unique species helped him formulate his theory of evolution.  For more information on the eruption, see here.
