Saw a weather report that FL was expecting some cold weather, wondering if this has any affect on the pythons, monitor lizards, or any other critters introduced to FL wildlife?

I think it does affect those reptile creatures, as they rely on the warm weather and sun to heat their bodies.

I remember I think back in 2008 there was such a bad cold snap in broward county that iguanas and lizards were literally falling out of the trees.... dead.

I worked at this office building that had a really nice lake/pond out in the front and lots of trees around. I remember walking into work by the pond seeing dead geckos and lizards all over the ground.

Yes, cold weather is hell on cold blooded creatures. Especially those in S FL when the cold fronts reach down there

It's freezing-out the 'tourist species' -- particularly those expecting to spend their days sun bathing on the beach.

However, there does seem to be a heartier species of tourist who, regardless of how cold it gets, insist on acting like it's 30-40-degrees warmer.

Haven't seen to many pythons and giant lizards around, but, then, we are some distance north of the Everglades.
