Igora arrived in November 2020 at 10 years of age. She had been a pet and was no longer wanted. She has a spinal deformity and is nearly blind but has lots of get up and go in her. She spends time roaming around the ONC Education Building classrooms and basking in the sun near the classroom windows when not in her enclosure. She helps us to teach about non-native animal species in Utah and the problems those animal cause and encounter by no fault of their own.
