Lizards The Size Of Dogs Are Spreading From Florida To Louisiana, Texas

Just wait 'til 2020 turns '21 and starts drinking they said but did I listen? Noooo. 
Elon Musk is getting ready to escape to Mars and I haven't even bought my ticket yet.

From Lafayette, Louisiana's KLFY ch.10:

National Geographic: Dog-size lizards spreading into Texas and Louisiana from Florida

The Argentine black-and-white tegu, a large lizard that can grow up to four feet in length, has already proliferated widely throughout South Florida. But it’s not stopping there. These invaders have started popping up throughout the southeastern United States, posing a potential threat to native species and farmers.

Already getting a bit of the 'ol David Bowie, Future Legend vibe about the new year:

And in the death
As the last few corpses lay rotting on the slimy thoroughfare
The shutters lifted an inch in temperance building, high on Poacher's Hill
And red mutant eyes gazed down on Hunger City
No more big wheels

Fleas the size of rats sucked on rats the size of cats
And ten thousand peoploids split into small tribes
Coveting the highest of the sterile skyscrapers
Like packs of dogs assaulting the glass fronts of Love-Me Avenue
Ripping and rewrapping mink and shiny silver fox, now legwarmers
Family badge of sapphire and cracked emerald
Any day now, the year of the Diamond Dogs

"This ain't rock and roll! This is genocide!"

As they pulled you out of the oxygen tent
You asked for the latest party
