The Purge Has Begun For Florida Iguanas


The spread of green iguanas is spiraling out of control in Florida. In fact, it's gotten so bad that the state’s wildlife agency is urging homeowners to take matters into their own hands. Floridians have been given the green light to exterminate the non-native lizard, without the need for permits. The FWC encourages homeowners to kill green iguanas on their own property whenever possible.
