Residents in South Florida are not only dealing with chilly temperatures but falling iguanas, too. That's right, lizards are falling from the sky. Well, trees, technically.
Temperatures have fallen to 40-degrees in Miami and with that, the exotic green iguanas are becoming immobilized and falling from their perches on tree branches. Naturally, people have been posting photos of the strange phenomenon on social media.
Don't worry, though. Wildlife officials say the cold animals may appear to be dead, but are often still alive...and just fine.
