During a trip to the Galapagos Island, Laguna Beach resident Nancee Wells visited a fish market and happened upon this scene.

"After visiting the giant tortoise at the Darwin Research Station on Santa Cruz Island, we were walking down the street and stopped at the fish market, where even the local animals were shopping!" she said.

Located about 600 miles west of Ecuador, Santa Cruz Island is the second largest of the 15 major Galapagos Islands. For more on the Galapagos, check out "Evolution Runs Wild on Ecuador's Galapagos Islands."
