In short, the answer is time. Upon reaching these volcanic isles, the first generation of reptiles and marine birds had millions of years to adapt. Specific evolutionary traits include a notch in tortoises’ shells that allows them to fully extend their necks to reach more fruit. Vampire finches drink blood from the blue-footed booby. But don’t worry – they don’t mind! During scarce periods of food, some Marine Iguanas can shrink their body mass by up to 20% – usually during weather phenomena such as El Niño. Even from island to island, each section is unique unto itself. What might be considered the apex predator on one island may be breakfast on another. Darwin’s theory has surmised that time transformed small and primitive creatures into the unique beings they are today
