Monkey Jungle Closed Early Because Of Cold Weather

Florida's unusually low temperatures have proven to be a challenge for the region's wildlife.
Large, green iguanas become catatonic in the cold and fall from trees. When the weather warms, they reanimate.
Pythons take refuge from the cold by slithering into dark, dry crevices when the cold becomes unbearable. Saturday's rains might have spoiled that strategy.

Monkey Jungle closed early Saturday. For the first time in at least 30 years, Miami Metrozoo shut its doors because it was too cold.
Farther north, more than 160 cold-stunned turtles were found floating in a lagoon near Titusville. And more than 200 manatees were swimming in heated water outside a Tampa Bay power plant.
