Apparently the phenomenon of iguanas falling from trees as the temperatures drop below the lizards' comfort level, even here in sunny Florida, has excited reporters all over the world. As Florida residents who are managing to survive even with unexpected icicles dripping from our muzzles, we dogs feel sorry for the poor creatures. The human population, however, mainly in Palm Beach where these iguanas have proliferated like bunnies, is kind of pleased that a hibernating iguana is comparatively easy to remove, especially when he/she has landed with a kerplunk on the pavement, unlike the problems presented when said iguana is munching on all the plants in the landscape and leaving his/her iguana poo all over the place.
We were going to add a photo to this post -- but could hear all those "eeeeewws" and decided just to provide this comparatively benign link:
Our Pittsburgh pals, Laciegirlie et al, are planning a visit and have suggested we break out the grill. More later on this intriguing idea.....
