Floridians on the Alert for Falling Frozen Iguanas

MIAMI, FL (Ben Caxton) — The National Weather Service routinely warns people about falling rain, snow, and hail, but temperatures are dropping so low in South Florida the forecasters are warning residents about falling iguanas. NWS Miami posted Tuesday on its official Twitter that residents shouldn’t be surprised if they see iguanas falling from trees as lows drop into the 30s and 40s. The low temperatures stun the invasive reptiles, but the iguanas won’t necessarily die. That means many will wake up as temperatures rise Wednesday. Iguanas aren’t dangerous or aggressive to humans, but they damage seawalls, sidewalks, landscape foliage and can dig lengthy tunnels.

  1. I saw a squirrel fall out of a tree one time, but he was just drunk. It was funny, watching him try to climb back up the tree. He would get about maybe 6 or 8 inches up, then fall backwards. He probably ate too many over-ripe persimmons from a tree behind my neighbor’s house.
