For those of you looking for updates, the lizard was positively identified as Corytophanes cristatus (goes by many names but forest goblin was a new one to me! probibly due to their attitude). They hail for the rainforests of central america and is part of the iguanid family, definately not from australia! Most come into the trade as WCs, and do to their high humidity requirements, parasites, and pickiness sometimes with food, many rarely go to a good home. Kept in a rainforest environment with plenty of vertical/near vertical branches, high humidity, and a couple plants to hide in, they can be great little guys, but never tame down, they are always fiesty little "goblins" but I've found them to be rewarding to work with. Some zoos will have them in their rainforests exihibit, such as the exhibit atop the National Aquarium in Baltimore... if you can find him ;)
