Just saw this and since we were just talking about them... Florida iguanas are freezing...
Yeah, my brother-in-law saw one drop from a tree while taking a walk. Reptiles really aren't built for chilly weather.

That's pretty funny. It's sad too, but maybe the low temps is a good thing overall for the FL ecosystem. It's crazy what a non-native species can do over a long period of time. Hints the python bounty someone mentioned earlier.

These are commonly referred to as spiny orb weavers. A common spider native to the southern US, found from southern California to North Carolina. In this picture the spider seems to be hiding under its shell like abdomen in an attempt to look inedible.
