Interesting Animals of the Galapagos Islands

The Galapagos Islands are an archipelago found in the Pacific Ocean roughly 620 miles off the coast of Ecuador.  These islands are known as one of the ideal travel destinations for wildlife enthusiasts due to the diverse animal and plant life.  In fact, there are fourteen animals completely unique to the Galapagos Islands.  Here is an article I found giving a brief description of each unique species: http://www.mnn.com/earth-matters/animals/photos/14-unique-animals-of-the-galapagos-islands/distinctive-wildlife

And here are some pictures of the species I found the coolest:

    Those are definitely some interesting looking creatures. Can they be found elsewhere in the world or just in the Galapagos?
