OK, here is Frozen Iguana No. 1.
I named her Elsa because, you know, she’s Frozen.
Temperatures in Florida have dropped below 40 degrees, which is pretty unheard of in the Sunshine State.
And 40 degrees is cold enough that iguanas are completely immobilized and falling out of trees.
I know. This world is insane.
Most likely, these iguanas are not dead, and they just need to warm up a bit.
This Twitter user advised moving these stiff lizards into the sun to give them a better chance of warming up quickly.
But Kristen Sommers, who works for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, said it’s better to leave them where they are since they might feel threatened and bite once they warm up a bit.
Iguanas are native to Central and South America, and they start to slow down when temperatures fall below 50 degrees Fahrenheit.
So when it hits the 30s, it is officially too cold for them to move at all. And they’re not the only animal this happens to.
The wildlife commission has been hard at work rescuing sea turtles that have frozen up and have been “found floating listlessly on the water.”
As of right now, though, there is no rescue effort planned for the iguanas.
So this is it, folks. We’re watching the end of the world happen in slow motion. These frozen iguanas are just like us — paralyzed because we’ve entered unknown territory. Afraid of what might happen next. And super super cold.
