This next story is the National Weather Service warning…
Yesterday (Tuesday) the National Weather Service in Miami issued a forecast warning residents in south Florida falling iguanas as temperatures dropped into the 30s and 40s.
Iguanas can’t handle cold temperatures because they are already cold-blooded.
When temperatures drop below 45 degrees fahrenheit iguanas slow down or become immobile.
And since iguanas often sleep in trees this means they mall fall from them when they go dormant.
This can be dangerous if one lands on you because iguanas are large, adult males can reach 5 feet in length, and weigh up to 20 pounds.
They appear dead but they are not, they remain breathing with critical body functions still operating.
It’s their body’s way of protecting them.
