Pythons, iguanas: Florida restricts some exotic reptiles

In this Oct. 14, 2013 file photo, a green iguana expands a pouch of skin underneath the lower jaw called a dewlap, as it sits in the sun on Key Biscayne, Fla. Iguanas, Burmese pythons, monitor lizards and many other reptile invasive species have taken hold in Florida. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission voted Thursday, Feb. 25, 2021, to move these animals onto a prohibited list. That means they can only be brought to Florida for exhibition, such as a zoo, and at a research facility.(AP Photo/J Pat Carter, File)
