He ultimately left the islands with over two dozen tortoises, but used them for eating, partially contributing to their declining numbers. The Galapagos giant tortoises can live to more than 100 years old and grow to more than 500 lbs in weight. The pink iguana is critically endangered and it is believed only 200 are left in existence.
Humans belong to this class. Like with the Galapagos' finches, the variety of species of lava lizards represents a remarkable example of adaptive radiation.
Whether you see bryozoans in a positive or negative light depends upon the circumstances. Some, for example, eat seeds with the help of their short beaks, while others go after insects with their longer, curved beaks. There should even be a difference if they're sick, overweight or pregant.

While birds can be found across Rabida, Fernandina, Isabela, and Santa Cruz Island, much of the forest these little guys call home bryozoan fauna of the Galapagos islands been cleared for agriculture, putting them in danger of serious population decline.
Although bryozoans are considered sessile animals, some can move albeit very slowly by using spiny defensive zooids as legs.
