Low temperatures leave these reptiles still, falling from trees overnight, but recover again the next day with the rise of the thermometer

The meteorological services of all the countries are prepared to alert of major climatic phenomena, as we have already seen in Spain in recent days with the Gloria storm. However, from time to time they surprise by announcing some phenomenon little known to most citizens, although terms such as explosive cyclogenesis are, increasingly, more common.

What is not normal is that an iguana rain is announced and that is precisely what the Florida meteorological service has foreseen. The Miami-based agency warned that these reptiles could fall from the trees overnight, in a message posted on their Twitter account.

The message said verbatim:

This isn’t something we usually forecast, but don’t be surprised if you see Iguanas falling from the trees tonight as lows drop into the 30s and 40s. Brrrr!

That means a temperature that ranges between 4.5 degrees Celsius and one below zero.

Why will the iguanas fall?

Iguanas are reptiles that are affected by low temperatures as it leaves them motionless. That means they can’t grab trees and fall to the ground, being knocked unconscious. However, these low temperatures do not kill them, but paralyze them, so when the thermometer rises again, the iguanas will wake up again.

As AP publishes, iguanas are not dangerous or aggressive with humans, in fact, they are pets for many people. However, their actions damage marine dikes, sidewalks and can excavate extensive tunnels. Males are older than females and can reach up to a meter and a half in length, reaching almost 10 kilos in weight.

On the other hand, females can lay up to 80 eggs a year and it is a characteristic animal of Florida, where their warm climate favours them, although they come from Central America, South America and some Caribbean islands.
