Pink Iguana!

PopSci believes that pink iguanas are real. Because, as it turns out, pink iguanas are real!

Even after the first pink iguana sighting came in 1986, no scientists bothered to actually examine the creatures until recently. Now it’s a race against time, given that the lizard already meets the criteria of a critically endangered species.

The rosada iguanas live in one volcano on one island of the Galapagos, and have lived there since before some of the other islands were formed. Darwin missed out on these guys probably because the Volcan Wolf volcano of Isabela is one of the most rugged environments in the whole archipelago.
