I very seriously doubt that the N. All. Lizard would fare will in your region. In reality, it is not a good idea to try an transplant non-native species. Our various state wildlife agencies have done quite a bit of this over the years with some successes but some disasters as well.
You should contact your state's wildlife agency to determine the legality of such a venture, even for you native species of lizards. R. F. Hoyer
