Darwin Finch

Entrance to the finca of Polo, Ricardo's cousin

Aslak and giant turtle. Aslak to the right.

I wonder why they still have a tail when we don't

Did you just say that I have food in my face?

Entering a lava tunnel

Guess what. My shoe is size 43

Deeper into the lava tunnel

Hungry

Lazy. Or cold. Or both. Definately ectothermic
