Caution: Falling iguanas

Fancy a romantic walk in the moonlight on a nippy Florida evening? Better take a seriously sturdy umbrella.

Nights have been so cold down there lately that iguanas are dropping out of the trees. Some of them wake up eventually, and others are down for the count. So you can add sudden, reptile-induced concussions and rotting lizard corpses to the list of charming attractions available in the Sunshine State.

The critters are not native, and they're a nuisance, so ... whatever.
