The pic shows a male Sceloporus of the formosus group, most likely S. malachiticus, the emerald swift. These montane animals require a very special setup. Although surprisingly some specimens do well for years under non apt conditions, most die within 6 months if you do not follow there needs. These are: Bright lights (metal halides) ant daytime with high basking spot temps but low temps in other regions of the cage. Very good ventilation, very humid nights with a STRONG temp drop (below 60s).
Hope that helps
