Galapagos Mammals | Galapagos Islands Wildlife Guide

Due to its isolated location far from the mainland, the Galapagos archipelago is home to just six mammal species. This unique ecosystem supports two types of bats and two types of rice rats, none of which you are likely to encounter on your journey. In contrast, two other species—Galapagos sea lions and Galapagos fur seals—will typically appear often during your Galapagos adventure. You may round out your mammal watching with views of bottlenose dolphins, while a sperm whale sighting would be a treat and is very rare.
