Falling Iguanas!

But Mr Magill warned: "I knew of a gentleman who was collecting them all in the street and throwing them in the back of his station wagon.

"All of a sudden as he’s driving along these things are coming along, crawling on his back and almost caused a wreck."

The warm, humid climes of the southern state are perfect for cold-blooded reptiles but a prolonged cold snap is making them suffer.

When temperatures fall below around 5C, iguanas go into a comatose state with very little blood flowing around their bodies, according to experts.

As their grip loosens, the tree-dwelling creatures often fall to the ground or simply stop in their tracks.

They make good pets

They'll eat lettuce, strawberries, mealworms, etc. But they do get big, and will lash you with their tails, if you annoy them.

I'm going to get in trouble for this!

But at first I thought it was another Iguanatrail conspiracy

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

Makes me wonder

Personally, I avoid eating reptiles..they're too chewy and rubbery..and gross.
