Iguanas Are Falling from Trees in Florida Again
It wasn’t too long ago where we were having a chuckle about lizards falling from trees in Florida.
Two years ago, actually.
But, thanks to another cold snap down in the Sunshine State, it’s happening again. It’s RAINING (or snowing?) lizards!
A sudden cold snap in the Sunshine State has had an unexpected consequence. It’s making iguanas to fall out of trees – sometimes right on top of unsuspecting people below.
The cold weather puts the iguanas into a ‘state of hibernation’, making them lose their grip and fall. But they’re not dead and won’t freeze to death, experts say.
Hope they don’t land on a road though!

You haven't lived until you've seen a comatose iguana fall out of a palm or mangrove tree.
