Attention All Floridians
You need to do your part and help capture the iguanas during this cold spell.http://www.justnews.com/news/22152242/detail.html

That may be the best thing I've heard all day... I think everyone down in FL should place pillows under your trees so the iguanas have a safe place to land and sleep

We have a big one that keeps crapping in our community pool.I would've loved to have seen the guy driving the car full of iguanas when they started to wake up.

I haven't seen any up here (yet) but
they have flat-out taken over the Florida Keys; we saw them crawling
all over the cut in Key Largo.....

I love them They eat all the fruit and flowers of the grass when it falls from the trees. Have two 5 foot mom and Dad with four babies running in my yard. Had one yesterday scared the living shit out of me! Went to pull the life jacket off the hanger and a baby was inside the jacket! Bastard jump on me! Lee

Can you trap them for their hide or at least kill them like rodents?

Actually they are supposed to be quite tasty,
this guy has shot over 16,000 of them; see here:

I'm sure they are a PITA for local residents but everytime I go to the Keys they are just kinda entertaining. When we grill out they just beg for food like a dog. We rent a house on a canal in Islamarada and they will actually swim across the canal when Carrie starts cooking on the outside kitchen.

I think they're really cool...
we used to have a big one for a pet; I bought it for my son when he was about 10 years old. But they can get nasty; whenever we walked by the thing he would lash that big long tail out and slap the crap out of you, like a freaking bull whip!
One day I heard my son screaming in his room, so I ran in there and this green iguana has clamped down on the tip of his nose and it won't let go! Scared the crap out of my wife, she thought the thing was going to bite the tip of his nose off! Anyway, everybody calmed down and I managed to get a butter knife in it's mouth and pried the freaking thing off his nose. Needless to say, we took it back to the pet store and left it there....
