During this visit to the Galapagos the diver-research- ers reap a rich harvest of re- sults about the life that in- habits the land and the cold HumboMt currents that wash the islands. The divers encoun- ter playful sea lions and giant manta rays that enjoy being tickled by the bubbles from the divers' life support sys- tems. Throughout, Cousteau's team must pay special atten- tion to the ever present sharks jackals of the sea. Yet always the men return to the marine iguana, the mys- terious creatures that are ex- otic remnants of a reptilian or- der which ended more than a hundred million years ago. To study the iguana under- water, a motorized vehicle is used by divers Jean-Clair Riant and Bernard Delemotte, They capture scenes of the iguana as it moves among the volcanic outcrops in search oJ food. Ashore, Cousteau and his crew examine the land iguana and they watch the wingless cormorant, a bird supreme in its adaptation.
