Can Pink Iguanas move out of way of the Lava? Or this is a Monolith Monsters Deal?

Xeni Jardin, boingboing, Darwin’s pink iguanas are all fine after Galapagos volcano eruption, here.

The Ecuadorian Ministry of the Environment and the Galápagos National Park reports that the world’s only colony of pink iguanas, which Charles Darwin observed and studied, was not harmed by the recent eruption of Wolf Volcano on Isabela island.

The volcano is the highest on the Galapagos Archipelago, and erupted Monday. Hot pink-orange lava flowed down its southeastern slope, and many feared that the rare iguana colony and its habitat could be threatened.

Park officials now say the lava missed the iguanas by about 6 kilometers (3.7 miles).
