We are not making this up.

The National Weather Service in Miami has issued an unofficial warning for falling iguanas on Tuesday night due to the unusual cold snap that's hit the Sunshine State.



First the water parks and rides and now this? :eek:

When I first saw this on Facebook I thought it was a joke.

Before we moved to Florida we used to like staying at Wyndham Sea Gardens for our annual winter vacation. There we a couple of good sized iguanas that we would always see in the trees in the area around the tiki bar. So one year other people mentioned they hadn't seen the iguanas and we are standing there looking up in the trees trying to spot them. The head of maintenance comes by and asks what we are looking at. We tell him and he tells us they fell out of the trees and died when it got really cold the previous month. I'm thinking what an a...h... to feed us a line like that. Imagine my surprise later when an internet search verified what he told us. He wasn't putting the dumb Northerners on after all. The cold puts them in a stupor but unless it stays cold long enough it doesn't necessarily kill them. Sometimes the fall from the trees or rooftops if they are high enough will kill them.

The past couple of years in the Fort Lauderdale/Miami area we've seen what the news referred to as an infestation of iguanas. People were told they could kill them as they are considered pests and do damage. So we were due for a cold snap to control the iguana population.

The South Florida iguana invasion is real, now every trip to Fort Lauderdale I see the green iguanas, in trees and hanging around bushes. They are usually in groups. So far, they have not invaded the Tampa Bay area. Maybe it's too cool for them up here in the winter time.

I took this photo of an orange one a few days ago in Deerfield Beach.
We soon after saw a female nearby.
