St. John island in the U.S. Virgin Islands gives rise to some new questions about the interaction between iguana species and human primates. Crystal Fortwrangler from Wider Angle Productions along with some of her production staff ( Renata Platenberg & Jessica Bellas) join James Tintle and John F Taylor regarding not only some of their discoveries but also some of their personal insights as well. What shall we do with the ever expanding population of iguanas on the island?



  • Are the iguanas actually native?

  • Human encounters good or bad?

  • Native opinions on Island Iguana? (1/3 of an acre with 100 Free Roaming Iguanas) Yes we’re    serious.

Wider Angle Productions is hoping to take their new film “It Ain’t Easy Being Green” on the Film Festival network this year. This helps to raise awareness and funds for future projects. Please contact us for any and all details on how you might be able to participate personally in the project. For the audio versions please see Reptile Livingroom 1.0 Audio.
