Pink Iguana hatchlings spotted for the first time on the Galápagos in decades

The Galápagos Islands in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Ecuador are a playground for biodiversity . Particularly famous for their role in helping Charles Darwin and his theory of evolution in the 1830s and 1840s , it’s home to many species that aren’t found anywhere else on the planet. Giant tortoises, flightless cormorants, and three species of land iguanas are some of the many animals that only call these islands home.

 

One land iguana species is the critically endangered Galápagos Pink Land Iguana Conolophus marthae ), which is only found on Isabela Island, one of the 13 major islands in the archipelago. First discovered in 1986 and identified as a new species in 2009 , there are only about 200 to 300 of these photogenic reptiles on the Isabela Island.

[Related: Rare, storied pink iguana discovered. ]

For the first time since scientists found the species, hatchling and juvenile populations of the Galápagos Pink Iguana have been found. The iguanas live along the slopes of Isabela Island’s Wolf Volcano and stretch up to 18.5 inches long.

“This discovery marks a significant step forward, which allows us to identify a path going forward to save the Pink Iguana,” said Danny Rueda, the director of the Galápagos National Park, in a statement .

 

One of the most remote spots monitored by the Galápagos National Park, the Wolf Volcano is home to a research and monitoring

Some Stone Correspondences for Every Day

From galleries.com

The days of the week were named (in English at least) for the Sun, the Moon, and the five planets known to the ancients (or for the Roman or Norse Gods associated with those planets).There are as many variants for the Gemstones of the Days of the Week as there are sources; no two seem to agree completely. There are consistencies, and the most common gemstones for English and several other Latin-based languages are listed here. Note that the alternate stones are consistent with the primary associated color (since the ancients sometimes called all red gems ruby, all green gems emerald, all violet stones amethyst, and so on), with the exception of Jupiter (Thor’s day) which has been identified with both Sapphire and Emerald, and often with another gemstone, Cat’s Eye.

January 23 Birthday Horoscope

May the next year of your life be more positive than the past year! 

Click here to read anyone’s birthday horoscope from sunsigns.org 

JANUARY 23 birthday horoscope predicts that you are adaptable! You can be a very observant person through your natural curiosity. You can easily be described as a chameleon. Some would say that you are your person. People never know what’s on your mind. You can keep things to yourself.

You embrace who you are instead of hiding it. Although you like to socialize, you can be a loner. Find out more about what your birthday says about you?

The January 23 birthday personality are flexible in their thinking. You meet new people and thrive in situations in which you are in the spotlight. Aquarians are funny but intellectual people. On top of that, you are honest to a fault. Your bluntness can be offensive to people.

You are an Air sign. You have the only connection to this element. Like the wind, you never see it coming, but you know it is there. It somehow can push you over with its intense burst of energy or can be as subtle as a summer’s breeze. The air is very active and is all over the place very much like you, Aquarius. You are a force to be reckoned with, that is for sure.

The January 23 zodiac characteristics show that Uranus, however, is linked to your need for flight and independence. The combination influences you to be objective. There is little to be considered when it comes to the welfare of others, but you tend to withdraw when it comes to being concerned about yourself.

It is a self-defense method, I know, and your friends and family tend to accept that way about you, but your temper tantrums and sometimes childish behavior are unbecoming to you. Your many wonderful friends tolerate this behavior only in their clear need to please you.

According to the Aquarius birthday horoscope, when it comes to being traditional, you are just the opposite. Whether it is your hobby or some new trendy fashion, you find being different appealing. Sometimes, you go over the top. Going overboard comes naturally to you.

People weirdly look at you, but again, your friend’s kindness is all there to protect you. The January 23 horoscope also shows that your unpredictable nature makes it difficult to tell you certain things. Your ability to distance yourself from the world leaves your friends and family members at a loss without you.

You can be charming but levelheaded. Aquarians born on January 23 are fascinating people. You have a lot to talk about in your many plights for success. You have had a variety of career options. You are familiar with leadership and its position.

You do not even know you are special because the things you do, you believe should be done. According to you, Aquarius, there should not be a special reward for just doing your job.

The January 23 horoscope predicts that you make beautiful friends. However, your concern for others can sometimes lack compassion. The future of person who born on 23 January depends solely on how you relate to people.

Aquarian men may seem remote and unapproachable but are very approachable. You are charismatic, intelligent and creative. Most are very easy going, but they have an adamant side that is infuriating.

The female Aquarius is equally talented. She is full of surprises that could lead friendly to her endless creative abilities. She knows that it is her physical attributes that lure the interest of others but wish they could see past that. The independent Aquarius has lost a few loves because of their unwillingness to sacrifice their positions.

If today is your birthday, then you are down-to-earth. You are strong people, but you are not always silent. You seem to hold many things inside making you prone to illnesses and diseases. Often put in the position of a leader, you have many ideas and traits that extended from your upbringing.

You take pride in your family unit. Your parenting is that of discipline and encompasses many values your parents gave you, but they are somewhat upgraded or altered. With that, come some criticisms that you may or may not take into consideration.

Concluding, you are an Aquarius birthday. You need to explore and to satisfy your natural curiosity. You, on the surface, seem unapproachable but you are very easy going.

Your family means the world to you. Your creative ability makes it hard to settle down to just one idea. You are strong and independent. Life is just better with Aquarian by your side.
