Their photos and videos are published on social networks.

Users are asked not to stand aside and offer to put lizards in warm clothes until the temperature rises. Some, on the contrary, write that iguanas are pests, and therefore offer to eat them, while there is such an opportunity.

However, local authorities are asking to be careful with reptiles and not to bother them, even if they seem to be dead.

The other day in Miami, Fort Myers Beach, Naples, Tampa and Orlando recorded temperatures up to -1 degrees Celsius.

Lizards fall into suspended animation even at a temperature of +7, and then fall from the trees on which they fell asleep. Outwardly, the iguana can be mistaken for the dead, but this is not so. That is why coastal residents are advised not to disturb the lizards. They should be put in a quiet place if they interfere. But for small individuals, the cold can become fatal, writes TSN.
