Stuttgart, From Karl .   The Galapagos Islands became famous after Charles Darwin landed there to study the animals of these islands and postulate the theory of evolution. Because of a large number of endemic animals, specific climatic conditions on different islands and isolation from the outside world, he could systematically study the impact of specific factors on the morphology [ ].

    GALÁPAGOS FAUNA: THE KOOKY, THE NATIVE, THE ADAPTEDDue to the relative isolation of the Galápagos Islands and its distance from the surrounding mainland continents, many mammals have not found their way to Galápagos shores—at least not naturally. Only 6 terrestrial mammal species are thought of as island ‘natives,’ though substantially more marine mammals call the Galápagos Marine. Mammals. There are relatively few species of native land mammals in the Galapagos because of the distance and difficulty of the journey there from the mainland. Today, six native species can be found on land; two species of rice rat, two species of bat, the Galapagos fur sea and the Galapagos sea lion. You are unlikely to see native rats or.

Islands, collected by Dr. Baur. Bull. Mus. The avifauna of the Galapagos Islands is characterized by a small number of endemic species, including the 13 species of Darwin's finches.

Amongst the mammals, small herbivorous mammals have a better survival chance on a vegetation raft than large species. Thus the few terrestrial mammals that have made it are small omnivorous species.

There are no indigenous large carnivorous mammals on the islands, a factor that helps explain why many of the animals have lost their fear instinct. Galapagos Mammals | Galapagos Islands Wildlife Guide Due to its isolated location far from the mainland, the Galapagos archipelago is home to just six mammal species.

This unique ecosystem supports two types of bats and two types of rice rats, none. A grouping of islands. Many places in the pacific are archipelagos because of volcanic activity.

Plate tectonic movement in two directions (1 in NE and 1 in W) caused the formation of the Galapagos Islands. Ex: Hawaii, Tahiti, Galapagos, etc. Over miles from continental Ecuador, the Galapagos Islands are home to few native mammals.
