Freezing Iguanas are Falling from Trees in Florida

Freezing Iguanas are Falling from Trees in Florida

Frozen iguanas are tumbling off their perches in Miami’s suburbs, as South Florida and much of the US Southeast are in the grips of a frigid winter storm, as the freezing weather grows in intensity as it moves up the East Coast.

The iguanas were seen dropping from the trees Thursday because they are cold-blooded creatures, and if the temperature drops below 50 degrees, the reptiles become sluggish. If the temperature drops lower than 50, as it has in some parts of South Florida, the creature becomes completely immobilized, according to the Daily News.

The National Weather Service (NWS) reported Thursday morning that some parts of South Florida experienced temperatures below 40 degrees.

Various residents and news outlets have been tweeting and posting pictures and videos of the fallen reptiles on social media.
