3. Good. Be sure to kill the green shit heads if you find some

It needs to get that cold and stay that cold for a few days and take all the non-native species out.

This isnít the first time itís happened, either. Every time there is a cold snap like this, they lose their grip and fall out of the trees by the hundreds

5. Ohh, those photos. Damn, guys. I find it very sad.

Seriously. They may be Iguanas and not cute cuddly Koalas, but really?

9. I used to have one as a pet

He was the sweetest little thing (I think). I had him potty trained to go in one of my huge potted plants. When I would come home from work, he would crawl up onto my head and perch there for the evening. And he loved baths.

10. This is a real thing

Found two of them in the yard this morning after some strange thumping noises last night.

The disgusting creatures are invasive here so I wish it happened often enough to clear them out.

12. They also usually turn a dark blue or purple when it gets cold

Most of them thaw out and are fine after it warms up later in the day. They are invasive, and I wish the cold would kill most of them and also the big snakes let loose in the Everglades.

13. When I was in Tamarindo, Costa Rica, they were everywhere.

You would have to step over them on the sidewalks. Some were quite large. Cool animals.
