Wow! Yet more information for the fundies to ignore.
More upsetting, is it yet another species slated for extinction due to our actions?

It would appear that my submission of a BBC article on the same subject was not good enough.

:D

It all lies I tell you. Those fundamentalist atheists, liberal commies have been out there painting those iguanas. Who else would have chosen pink?

On a barely related topic, last week I found an article written by Mark Brazil in the Japan Times Online describing a an iquana which he thinks is a hybrid between a marine iguana and a land iguana.
http://search.japantimes.co.jp/cgi-bin/fe20011018mb.html
The wikipedia also refers to this hybrid but thinks that the offspring are sterile. It would be interesting if they were fertile, because they can apparently feed both on land and in the sea.

The Galapagos islands continue to offer up surprises. I wonder how things might have turned out if Darwin had never set foot there...

Most likely we would be talking about Wallace's theory of Evolution, because someone was going to (and effectively did) figure it out.

I'm the David who sent in this link to Josh. This was originally a Routers news article. Just as interesting as the article itself is the fact that it was prominently displayed on Yahoo.com's front page in America. It seems like most articles here on RD.net come from The Guardian. Perhaps Josh chose the American Yahoo version to show how evolution is working it's way into the American mainstream. That's good news!
