"a frigatebird puffs its red throat out like a spinnaker.  A sea lion zips through the waves.  The reef, with its resident fish, squid and crabs, turns out to be an underwater forest as diverse as anything on dry land...two Galapagos land iguanas perched in a sea of fiery red vegetation...cast a jaundiced eye at the viewer as if to say "It may look inhospitable to you, but we live here".  Rattner makes it clear that we would do well to remember that."
