VIDEO: Florida Got So Cold That Iguanas Fell Out Of Trees Until They Warm Up

If you were in Florida during the recent cold snap and saw dead iguanas everywhere, don’t worry, they’re just cold.

When the cold-blooded lizards get too cold their bodies shut down. Once temperatures start to rise they will reanimate and go on about their normal routine.

“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 Emily Maple, the reptile keeper at the Palm Beach County Zoo.

Iguanas weren’t the only ones severely affected by the cold weather. Sea turtles in Texas had to be taken in by the National Park Service due to them shutting down from the cold weather.
