Godzilla, a trained 7-year-old iguana, is back where she belongs after being kidnapped from a Paramount pet store.

The reptile-napper was caught on surveillance camera snatching Godzilla from her outdoor sanctuary in front of Paramount Pet Enterprise on Monday.

Store owner Holly Cepeda said Godzilla is well-known in the community, and she regards her as part of her own family.

Cepeda said she received a call from a pet store in Huntington Park on Wednesday, saying someone sold an iguana to the shop on Tuesday. Workers at that store realized the iguana was Godzilla after seeing news reports about the theft.
