Iguanas dying victims of global warming… oops sorry: dying from global cooling!
Tuesday afternoon, the National Weather Service in Miami issued an unusual warning about cold-stunned iguanas falling from trees across South Florida.
Wednesday morning, reports and photos appeared of the reptiles lying on the ground:
“Verification of the @NWSMiami warning,” tweeted Eric Blake, a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration meteorologist, who included a photo of a stunned lizard on Virginia Key, Florida. “That boy ain’t going nowhere … young one couldn’t take it (might be dead).”
Another photo of an iguana lying on the ground was taken in Oakland Park, Florida.
