Watch for Falling Iguanas! Bomb Cyclone Drops Frozen Lizards

Iggy popsicle Freezing iguanas fall from trees in Florida

The good news: majority likely aren't dead - they're just really, really cold.

Iguanas aren't the only species struggling to cope with the cold snap. Although the iguanas may look dead, once the sun comes out and the temperature warms up, they can pop back to life.

Iguanas are falling out of trees in Florida because of the cold; here's what to do if you find one.

They're not the only reptiles stunned by this week's cold snap - sea turtles also stiffen up when temperatures fall. The wildlife commission's biologists have been rescuing cold-stunned sea turtles found floating listlessly on the water or near shore, but no such rescue is planned for iguanas.

And in South Florida, it is "raining iguanas".

Elsewhere in Florida, the effects of a brutal winter storm rolling up the East Coast were less exotic.

If you are "suffering" through the sub-40-degree temperatures in Florida, consider yourself lucky you are not an iguana.

Chiefs' Travis Kelce out with concussion after taking a brutal hit
Defensive back Johnathan Cyprien came in from the side and hit Kelce helmet-to-helmet to the left side of the tight end's head. He led all tight ends with 83 receptions this season and had five catches for 84 yards in the first half of Saturday's game.

Cerabino told The New York Times that he prodded the iguana with a pool skimmer. "Like any wild animal, it will try to defend itself", she says.

Iguanas climb up trees to roost at night, said Ron Magill, communications director for Zoo Miami. Like nature's solar panels, once the iguanas absorb enough rays of sun, they spring back into action.

"All of a sudden these things are coming alive, crawling on his back and nearly caused a wreck".

The cold-blooded creatures native to Central and South America start to get sluggish when temperatures fall below 50 degrees, said Kristen Sommers, who oversees the nonnative fish and wildlife program for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

According to the Sentinel, iguanas arrived in Florida first as pets and, once they escaped or were freed by their owners, they first moved into Miami-Dade County in 1966, then to the Keys in 1995, before making a home of Broward County in 2001 and Palm Beach in 2003.

The National Weather Service (NWS) reported Thursday morning that some parts of South Florida experienced temperatures below 40 degrees. "It's not like something you see every year".
