Florida Forecast Predicts Frozen Iguanas Falling From Sky


The National Weather Service forecasted this week that frozen iguanas might fall out of the sky in the Sunshine State thanks to freezing temperatures. As CNN notes, temperatures below 45 degrees Fahrenheit make the cold-blooded reptiles go dormant; while they appear to be stiff and possibly dead, they're still breathing and their vital organs still function. Still, Zoo Miami's communications director Ron Magill notes, "I do know that there are several iguana hunters that are looking forward to this upcoming cold front as it will certainly facilitate them removing these invasive reptiles from the South Florida environment, as they will not be able to run away!"
