WATCH: Huge ‘Godzilla’ iguana spotted by scuba divers

This ‘Godzilla’ iguana was seen spotted swimming close to human divers in this remarkably clear underwater footage.

The creature, which is the same size as its human counterparts, swims majestically through the sea.

He was filmed by videographer at Cabo Marshall, a dive site off the north coast of Isabela in the Galapagos Islands.


In the footage, the iguana crawls along the sea bed searching for food before lifting off and heading back to the surface for air.

As he dives again his long tail can be seen sweeping from side to side as his limbs are kept tight to his side.



The video shows him scooting past divers as he continues his hunt for something tasty to eat.

Marine iguanas, like this one filmed eating algae, are vegetarians and experts when it comes to foraging underwater.
