Iguanas running amok prompt Palm Beach County to push for crackdown

The Palm Beach Post has an interesting article about the move to have the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission increase the regulations governing iguanas that people purchase as pets. The article discusses a recent Palm Beach County meeting where two of the commissioners had first hand testimony about the problem associated with iguanas that have been released into the wild. The Animal Rights Foundation of Florida is requesting that the FFWC add green iguanas to their list of "reptiles of concern."
