Watch for Falling Iguanas! Bomb Cyclone Drops Frozen Lizards

You know what they say: When it rains, it pours — and when it snows in Florida, it hails frozen iguanas.

As a so-called bomb cyclone continues lashing the U.S. East Coast with historic cold temperatures, weird weather abounds. In south Florida, temperatures dipped below 40 degrees Fahrenheit (4 degrees Celsius) on Jan. 3, giving Tallahassee its first measurable snowfall in 28 years. Yesterday (Jan. 4), Floridians reported an even stranger sight: frozen iguana bodies falling out of trees and littering the ground around the suburbs.

Photos posted on social media show the green reptiles lying belly-up and stock-still on lawns, seemingly dead. The good news: Most of them likely aren't dead — they're just really, really cold. [See The World's Most Bizarre Lizards]
