Temperatures in Utah are practically tropical compared to most winters, but it’s an entirely different story on the east coast.
We’ve been hearing stories about the east coast’s cyclone bomb which is basically a winter hurricane. We’ve already seen frozen sharks wash up on the beach.

Those Iguanas Falling From Trees in Florida? They Probably Aren’t Dead: When temperatures dip into the 30s and 40s, people from West Palm Beach to Miami know to be on the lookout for reptiles stunned — but not necessarily killed — by the cold. https://t.co/g4YXbzwSYb pic.twitter.com/rXUc2Qnzbf

With temperatures in the 30’s and 40’s, the cold-blooded reptiles aren’t able to maintain a stable temperature.
There’s been an #iguana living in my parents yard in Miami for last 2 years. We found him like this today- We are trying to revive him 🙏
We have a lamp on him, he opened his eye & moved his arm, but not much else. #FrozenIguana 😞❄️ pic.twitter.com/47zZhtlABb

While they may appear dead, wildlife officials are warning locals not to touch the animals. They are likely stunned and will wake back up once they’re warm again. Iguanas can be very aggressive and will possibly bite or scratch if they feel threatened.
Once the temps get back to normal here is that same iguana . pic.twitter.com/qcCsihrad4
