Mississippi Skies: No chance of falling iguanas (like in Florida) — only falling rain across state

Published 6:34 am Tuesday, December 20, 2022

The potential record cold forecast for later this week is stretching across several states, including Florida. Scrolling through social media yesterday, several media mentioned there is a gigantic population of iguanas in the Sunshine state, many being former pets and descendants of pets. Spending much of their time in trees, the iguanas don’t handle cold weather well. Once the temperature drops below 45-degrees, the iguanas will often fall without warning! They land on sidewalks, people, cars, or anything below. It was also noted that most of the time the iguanas are just asleep and paralyzed and recover without any problems. Yikes!

Back in Mississippi, the only thing we need to be concerned about falling from the sky today is more rain in some areas.
