Yes, we saw much more than Peruvian boobies and South American sea lions on our visit to Islas Ballestas.  Here, for instance, are a pair of Humboldt penguins crashing a Pervian booby party:

We also got a good view of this colorful little guy, a red rock crab, also known as a Sally Lightfoot (grapsus grapsus):
