The Sun-Sentinel reports that a "super breed" of iguana is infesting Fort Lauderdale neighborhoods. Here's what resident Denise Fox told the city commission:
"One or two in the backyard nine years ago seems kind of fun,'' she said. "Now we've got 40 or 50 of them.''
Fox said the iguanas dig big holes, ruin house or pool foundations, and "eat our nicely landscaped yards.''
Mayor Jim Naugle told her that animal control, which includes iguanas, is Broward County's bailiwick.
"I don't know what the city itself could do,'' he said, "have an iguana patrol or iguana officers?''
