The Wolf volcano on one of Ecuador's Galapagos Islands erupts early on Monday morning, lighting up the sky. It is on the sparsely populated Isabela Island and does not pose a risk for humans. But a unique species of pink iguanas might be under threat, officials said. The island is home to a rich variety of flora and fauna and helped inspire Charles Darwin's theory of evolution after his visit in 1835. Wolf has been inactive for the past 33 years. The eruption comes on the heels of eruptions in neighrouring Chile, which is also located on the so-callled Pacific Rim of Fire.
