Palmela is a beautiful green iguana that was found up a tree in Sacramento in the summer of 2009. She was about a year and a half old at the time, and believed to be an escaped pet. She was brought to a local herp rescue, but no owners came forward to claim her. Palmela was very very skinny and extremely skittish.

Now she is happy to be in her forever home, and has gained quite a bit of weight! She loves climbing the cat trees in the house and taking baths. Her favorite foods are dark leafy greens, peaches, and edamame.
