National Weather Service warns of falling Iguanas in Miami


The National Weather Service issued an unusual warning in a tweet on Tuesday.

The forecast calls for Iguanas falling from trees due to temperatures dipping into the 30s.

The iguanas will simply be immobilized and not dead, although the distance of the fall can injury the cold-blooded creatures.

Iguanas originated in South America, but through pet trade, they arrived in South Florida. Escapes and releases allowed them to establish a large population in Florida neighborhoods where the temperature is usually warm.
