FLORIDA LEGISLATURE OKS BAN ON POSSESSING, BREEDING IGUANAS

Iguana 50198 1920

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) – Floridians who breed iguanas for fun may soon have to look for another hobby.

The Florida Legislature sent Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis a bill Wednesday that would make it illegal to possess, import, barter, trade, sell or breed green iguanas and tegu lizards.

People who currently have a license to breed the reptiles would be grandfathered under the bill, but could only sell the lizards to customers in other states.
