Falling Iguana Warning Issued After Temperatures Drop In South Florida

Temperatures in Southern Florida have dropped so low forecasters for the National Weather Service in Miami are warning residents to be careful of falling iguanas.

According to Fox News, the sunshine state has been experiencing the coldest temperatures in almost a decade with freeze warnings posted throughout the state on Wednesday morning.

“This isn’t something we usually forecast, but don’t be surprised if you see Iguanas falling from the trees tonight as lows drop into the 30s and 40s,” the NWS Miami wrote on Twitter. “Brrrr!”

The low temperatures are said to “stun” the invasive reptiles, but the iguanas won’t necessarily die. As Iguanas are cold-blooded creatures, they will become immobile as the temperature drops, but it also means many will wake up as temperatures rise.

While scientists report that Iguanas aren’t dangerous or aggressive to humans, the creatures will damage seawalls, sidewalks, landscape foliage and can dig lengthy tunnels.
