Beware Of Falling Iguanas Due To The Cold Weather

Good luck with that, Miami.

January 22, 2020

This is the apocalypse for Florida. I woke up this morning and it was 34 degrees. 34.

I don't even own a coat. I just put on 5 lightweight jackets and used the remote-start on my car to make sure the heater was cranked up. Luckily, we're set to get back up to the friendly, normal 70s this weekend for the Pro Bowl.  But in the meantime, there are some unexpected side effects:

Falling Iguanas.

The National Weather Service out of Miami warns to beware of frozen iguanas falling from trees. As cold-blooded creatures, they don't regulate their body temperatures and need an outside heat sort to stay warm. If they get too cold, their bodies eventually slow down and freeze - thus: frozen iguana falling out of a tree.

This is mostly a South Florida problem, as the invasive species is infesting just the tip. In fact, this summer, you were advised to kill the iguanas. Now... they're trying to get REVENGE!
