‘Godzilla’ marine iguana filmed feeding underwater – Watch
- Updated: April 15, 2016
A video of ‘Godzilla’ has been going viral on social media. Well, it is not the Godzilla that we all have seen in the movies but its look alike – the Marine Iguana.
The impressive animal is seen foraging for algae before heading back to the surface for air.
The footage was uploaded to YouTube and also shared on Reddit with the title: “Tiny Godzilla nomming on things underwater”.
One online user said: “I would s*** myself if I saw one of those in the ocean when I was snorkelling.”
And somebody else mused: “Haha, that’s so amazing and freakish looking. Marine iguanas are quickly climbing my rankings of my favourite animals.”
According to Wikipedia, the marine iguana is an iguana found only on the Galápagos Islands that has the ability, unique among modern lizards, to forage in the sea, making it a marine reptile.
The iguana can dive over 9m (30ft) into the water. It has spread to all the islands in the archipelago, and is sometimes called the Galápagos marine iguana.
It mainly lives on the rocky Galápagos shore to warm from the comparably cold water, but can also be spotted in marshes and mangrove beaches.
