Falling Iguanas

We are disturbed to learn that it has been so cold in south Florida that iguanas are falling from the trees.

We have heard two explanations for this—one, that their bodies go into hibernation mode at low temperatures and they are out for the count until the temperature rises; or two, they lose their lizard muscle control at the low temperatures and they simply can’t hang on to the tree limbs.

You can decide for yourself as it is our editorial policy not to engage in any controversial scientific theory.

We can only imagine how distressing it must be to stroll down a fairway or wander into the trees to retrieve an errant golf ball and be surprised by one of these dropping lizards.

It must be even more distressing for the iguanas.

And so we send our sympathies to golfers and iguanas on the golf courses of Florida with warm wishes for better days ahead.
