The temperature is so cold in Florida that iguanas are falling from their perches in suburban trees.

With the weather dipping below 40 degrees Fahrenheit early Thursday in parts of Southern Florida, it’s been cold enough to immobilize green iguanas common in Miami’s suburbs.

‘Don’t assume that they’re dead,’ Kristen Sommers, who oversees the nonnative fish and wildlife program for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said.

‘They’ll fall out of trees. They’ll end up in areas where your cars are, parking lots, areas where they’re cold stunned,’ said Emily Maple, the reptile keeper at the Palm Beach County Zoo, CBS12 reported.

‘If it’s just for a day or two they’ll just get to where they’re completely frozen in time. They’re still able to breathe. They’re still able to do bodily functions just very slow,’ said Maple.

Palm Beach Post columnist Frank Cerabino tweeted a photograph of an iguana lying belly-up next to his swimming pool.
