Galápagos briefing

The mammals in this picture are part of a group who came to the Galápagos Islands to see the endemic animals. They are definitely an introduced species. They are identified by their variety of shapes and colors and by their tendency to migrate in boats. Each night in their boat, Gino Salazar, the naturalist (in the white T-shirt), briefed them on their migration plan for the following day.
