IT’S SO COLD IN FLORIDA IGUANAS ARE FALLING FROM TREES
The sunshine state rarely has to deal with cold weather, but on the rare occasion it does it affects everyone that lives there — even iguanas.
Yesterday, temperatures dipped below 40 degrees Fahrenheit in the morning in parts of South Florida. That happens to be cold enough to immobilize green iguanas that are common in Miami’s suburbs.
The creatures start to get sluggish when temperatures drop below 50 degrees, and then they can lose their grip and fall off of whatever they’re perched on.
Well-meaning residents who find stiffened iguanas are advised to leave them alone, as they may feel threatened and bite once they warm up.
