Capuchin monkey

"Paco" is a former pet who was given up after the owners finally realized that they didn't have the time, patience, money, or understanding to care for him properly.  His "waist chain" had been allowed to grow into his skin, he is missing half of one ear, and was terrified of the outdoors.

Green iguana

"Godzilla" is a former pet as well.   At one year of age his owner contacted us and said he was too big.  They obviously had no idea how large iguanas can get (7 ft. long and weigh up to 35 lbs.).   He has tripled in size since we got him.

Kinkajou

"Mango" is often mistaken for some sort of monkey when people see his prehensile tail.  Kinkajous are actually closely related to raccoons.
