I thought it was a joke, but it's not (though I think it's pretty funny)/
According to the Miami Herald:
"Mango season may be months away, but if you live in South Florida today, your trees may be ripe for the picking — of iguanas.
Iguana meat, dubbed “chicken of the trees,” started showing up on Facebook Marketplace overnight, as the temperature dipped into the 40s. The green iguanas are an invasive species, stunned lifeless by South Florida’s occasional cold snaps, and they die if the chilly weather holds. The National Weather Service even tweeted to watch out for falling iguanas."

"Chicken of the Trees," eh??? What a fascinating turn of events! And it would be so helpful to curtail that invasive species!
I wonder who was the first one to cook and taste iguana!
My hat is off to him whoever he was!
