Invasion of big, voracious lizards threatens U.S. South

quote [ A group of South American lizards that can grow up to four feet long (1.2 meters) has established a home in the Florida wild after being brought to the United States as pets, and the reptiles could begin a voracious march across the U.S. South, according to a new study. ]

Now seems like a good time to talk about a border wall with Florida.

Feh. They're not as big as alligators.

True, but alligators don't need any more competition right now.

I wonder how the tegus compare to the pythons and feral cats in terms of environmental impact.

Apparently they eat alligator eggs, which can't be good.

Can they be eaten? How delicious are they? This might be a pretty easy problem to solve.
