Falling Iguanas??

Did you see the National Weather Service weather advisory for south Florida calling for falling Iguanas? Apparently the temperature will be dropping enough to make them dormant and they are falling out of trees and bushes.

    They are green iguanas, and they normally live in the tropics. They have been introduced into Florida. Florida has a climate similar to the tropics, but occasionally it does freeze over and that may make the lizards lose their ability to hold onto branches and they can fall and even die.

    They're an invasive species, so feel free to collect them. Just make sure you contain them in transport (they reanimate upon warming up), and if you plan to use them as food, dispatch them humanely.

    This isn't the first time in recent years. Do you remember when the weather in Fairbanks, AK was warmer than in Miami, FL? Iguanas were falling out of the trees then, too.
