The Phillies mascot is trying to give you nightmares

Nearly everybody knows Philadelphia Phillies mascot "The Phillie Phanatic." He's a big green monster of mayhem.

But there's also a subset of Phillies' mascots known as The Galapagos Gang. They're the Phanatic's friends -- he grew up with them on the Galapagos Islands -- and they're, well, a little different. They bob their weird heads in fan's faces, they catch hot dogs in nets, they eat people.

And during Thursday's Cardinals-Phillies game, Iggy the Iguana was doing this.

Sweet dreams.
