Cold snap causes iguanas to drop from trees
_____________________________

4 Jan 08 - How cold was it in South Florida this week? So cold the iguanas fell from the trees.

The cold-blooded reptiles go into a deep sleep when the temperature falls into the 40s (below 10 Celsius). Experts said their bodies basically shut off and they lose their grip on the tree.

But it isn't sudden death: Experts said the reptiles perk up when the temperatures rises.

While many of the iguanas will wake up, they could face death if low temperatures persist.
