The National Weather Service Has Issued A “Falling Iguana” Warning!
Well, you don’t see this often: a government agency warning people about Iguanas falling from trees!
“What The Friday” has the story!
A “Cold Weather” Iguana Warning!
It all starts with the weather of course.
A cold spell in Florida caused falling Iguanas: The National Weather Service’s office in Miami reported that the cold weather immobilized the Iguanas, who then fall from the trees!
As the National Weather Service said on Tuesday:
“This isn’t something we usually forecast, but don’t be surprised if you see Iguanas falling from the trees tonight as lows drop into the 30s and 40s!”
As news services rushed to report this, it’s important to note that the effect isn’t deadly. When Iguanas are stunned by the cold, they often simply stop moving in trees or fall.
Of course, Florida’s social media Reporters rushed to take take photos and video of the stunned Iguanas lying motionless on the ground, many of them with their legs in the air!
Experts say the Iguanas are likely to survive just fine – and they warn that even if the animals aren’t able to move their limbs, they can still deliver a painful bite – so don’t touch!
As one news service pointed out, Iguanas have the nickname “chicken of the trees.”
So of course, there have been reports in Miami that “culinary-minded” people began seizing – and selling — Iguanas that fell from trees!
That’s right, some locals are making Iguana Tacos!
Enough about THAT! On a completely different note, remember when I shared this?
