Allie searches far and wide to find all the best and hilarious stories involving animals from around the world.

We start where else, but Florida. With the cold temperatures they’ve recently experienced, there have been reports of frozen iguanas falling out of trees. It’s raining iguanas down there. And now there has been a warning issued: Don’t touch the iguanas, they are not dead. They may thaw out and attack you. People in Florida are also trying to eat them as well. One man, originally from Central America, now living in Florida that thought he hit the Jackpot when finding several frozen Iguanas. “In Central America, iguana is a delicacy. It's something - they're actually farmed for food. So this gentleman just thought, wow, I just have a bunch of protein here. He's on Key Biscayne. He's sort of picking up all these iguanas that appear to be dead on the road that had fallen out of trees. They turned gray and were not moving at all and very cold to the touch. And he put them into his vehicle. He's loading them up like he was stocking up for a big barbecue. When they went back into the vehicle, the vehicle warmed up, and those iguanas started coming back to life. And all of a sudden, they started getting up and running around in the car, and it caused an accident.” “Zombie Iguanas,” that’s a great movie right there.

A Siberian Husky named Jubilee, who’s breeder dumped her at a New Jersey shelter because of her weird eyelid deformity. The breeder gave her to Husky rescue and told the shelter that Jubilee couldn't be sold because she was too "weird" looking. Jubilee looks like the Taylor Swift of dogs. She has a perpetual look of surprise on her face. Jubilee had been at the shelter for 2 years when they decided to take to Facebook with a heartbreaking doggy plea for her adoption. "I came from a 'breeder' who couldn't sell me because he said I was 'weird' looking," the shelter wrote. "Huskies are majestic looking dogs and I don't know why I don't look like them. I wish I was beautiful so someone would want me to be their dog.” Long story short, 40,000 shares later, Jubilee has found her forever home. By the way, If they don’t change her name to Taylor, somethings wrong, right?

Would you click on this Headline? Bloodthirsty Squirrel Leaves 2 Hospitalized, Neighbors Hiding Out During Daytime? The answer is yes. This is that family in their own words. “We usually don’t go outside in the daytime because he comes out in the daytime. When I stepped outside the door he leaped on me and bit my arm, I pulled him off, threw him to the ground, and tried to get in the house. I couldn’t get in the house because he came back, he bit this leg.” The family is forced to stay indoors because of the squirrel. According to authorities, nothing can be done until the animal can be trapped and moved. It’s like a horror movie where they can’t get away from the squirrel.

Finally, the story of a cat that is a total “G.” We’re all impressed by a local black and white cat named “Max.” He faced off with three coyotes at his Highland Park home. Maya Gurrin was home with her husband watching a movie when all of a sudden they see this kind of shadow of a tail. They walk outside and all of a sudden they see three coyotes completely surrounding him. They scare away the coyotes and bring Max inside. When they checked the security cameras, they see that Max was holding his own. Clawing and swiping at the coyotes and scaring all three coyotes. Allie was all in on Max until the owner said that she’s considering building him a “Catio” so he can be outdoors and still be protected from other unwelcomed coyotes or predators.
