Miami citizens warned of 'falling iguanas' season
The U.S. National Weather Service in Miami is calling for "falling iguanas" in its holiday forecast.
Temperatures in South Florida are expected to drop on Christmas Day and into the weekend, creating conditions that may cause iguanas to suddenly drop out of trees, the NWS said on Twitter.
Iguanas can't handle cold weather because they are cold blooded, so when the temperature drops, their bodies go dormant. They appear to be dead, but they are not. They remain breathing with critical body functions still operating, CNN reported.
