Falling iguanas possible in Florida due to cold temperatures

Beware Floridians! The National Weather Service is warning people to beware of falling iguanas as cold temperatures sweep the southern portion of Florida over the holiday.

The National Weather Service Miami posted Tuesday on its official Twitter that residents shouldn’t be surprised if they see iguanas falling from trees as lows drop into the 30s and 40s. The low temperatures stun the invasive reptiles, but the iguanas won’t necessarily die. That means many will wake up as temperatures rise Wednesday. (AP Photo/Wilfredo Lee)
