加拉巴哥群岛的野生动物包括一些世界上最独特的动物 – 海洋鬣蜥，加拉帕戈斯陆地鬣蜥，蓝脚鲣鸟，加拉帕戈斯陆龟等等。 在这里，您可以浏览加拉帕戈斯野生动物的图像集。 尽管加拉帕戈斯群岛位于赤道上，但按热带标准来看，它们并不是非常炎热，低地的平均白天气温达到约85°F。 这些岛屿通常非常干燥，只有短暂的雨季。 太平洋的Humbolt Current极大地影响了气候，Humbolt Current将南极沿着南美洲海岸的冷水输送到加拉帕戈斯群岛。 加拉帕戈斯群岛位于地壳的热点之上。 这个热点，也被称为地幔柱，是一列加热的岩石，从地球的深层到达。 加热的岩石上升，因为它会减压并部分融化，形成岩浆。
Wildlife in the Galapagos Islands includes some of the world’s most unique animals – marine iguanas, Galapagos terrestrial iguanas, blue-footed ostriches, Galapagos tortoises and more. Here you can browse the collection of images of the Galapagos wildlife. Although the Galapagos Islands are located on the equator, they are not very hot by tropical standards, and the average daytime temperature in the lowlands reaches about 85°F. These islands are usually very dry and have only a short rainy season. The Humbolt Current in the Pacific Ocean has greatly affected the climate, and Humbolt Current transports the Antarctic along the cold waters of the South American coast to the Galapagos Islands. The Galapagos Islands are located above the hotspots of the earth’s crust. This hot spot, also known as the mantle plume, is a heated rock that reaches from the deeper layers of the earth. The heated rock rises because it decompresses and partially melts, forming a magma.
