A video of a group of running iguanas has gone viral on social media, with many internet users strongly recalling the Jurassic Park movies.
The undated clip was originally shared by user @neverseentit on Twitter, but gained traction on the microblogging website when it was re-shared by user Rob n Roll and former basketball player Rex Chapman. “It gives off a strong Jurassic Park vibe,” the user wrote as he tweeted the clip which garnered over 87,000 views.

In the 8-second clip, the iguanas appear to be running away from something, resembling the Gallimimus flocking scene from the 1993 Jurassic Park movie, where protagonist Alan Grant and the children encounter a herd of Gallimimus trying to escape from a Tyrannosaurus Rex.

While most of Twitter is quite intrigued by the video of the running iguanas, others were also amused as a man can be heard trying to talk to the reptiles in the clip.
Iguanas. I have seen similar sites here in Miami but not * nearly * as much.
