Darwin's Return: Sea Lion Pup

A sea lion pup spots Darwin coming ashore, and flops over to properly welcome him to South Plaza Island, a small, crescent shaped island that is less than 500 feet wide. Today about 1,000 sea lions make the island their home.

Darwin landed on just four islands during his visit to the Galapagos aboard the HMS Beagle in 1835.
