Scientists Found New Species of Galapagos Pink Iguana

Scientists have just discovered a new species of iguana that has pink scales and lives on one volcano in the Galapagos Islands:

... scientists have discovered that the "rosada" – or pink – iguana is a species in its own right after comparing its genes with other land iguanas on the Galapagos.

There were also physical differences, besides the striking pink and black-striped colouring. Pink iguanas had flat head scales, unlike other land iguanas, and a thick fatty crest on the back of the neck with small conical scales.
