The island by itself is a home of one of the biggest and most active sea bird breeding colonies of Galapagos Islands. This piece of land in the ocean is quite dry and has no natural water resources, and therefore inhabited by the land iguanas and lizards, that rely on the succulent flowers of the cactus plants as the water source.
