They're creepy and they're kooky,
Mysterious and spooky,
They're all together ooky...

Well, it's not quite The Addams Family, but the iguanas that are overrunning South Florida are certainly a creepy-crawly pain in the butt. I've heard they've become as common a road-kill sight down there as armadillos and opossums.

Maybe they can make a fantastic monster movie about this. The precedent is Alligator, where some mean dad flushes his kid's pet baby gator down the toilet, where it grows into a man-eating monster! (And apparently eats Ed Norton.) It would have to be better than this clunker.
