Of the many features unique to life in South Florida, perhaps the most chilling occurs when the temperature drops below 40 degrees.

That’s when they fall.

According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), green iguanas, an invasive species brought here from Central and South America, don’t handle the cold well. When temps drop the cold-blooded lizards can’t generate their own heat which causes them to go into a shock-like state. If they happen to be in a tree at that time, they can lose their grip and…thud.

Lizard lovers rejoice: the paralysis is normally temporary and as temps rise so do the zonked-out iguanas.
