  • Identify this lizard!

    anyone know what type of lizard this is?
    I found this pic on a japanese website, http://www.hachurui.com

    This is their picture.



    It looks to me if it is some sort of skink, It reminds me of Emerald Tree skinks, l. smaragdina.

    any opinions? Thanks

    I unfortunately couldn't find the skink (assuming by its appearance) when I searched. Found another cool one (if you like dark colors) though Jobi skink.
    Honor and valor were long ago drowned by the very society they swore to protect.

    8.10.9 Crested Geckos
    1.2 Gargoyle Geckos
    1.1 Tangerine Phase Albino AFT's
    0.3 Peach Phase Albino AFT's (two are striped)
    1.0 Bearded Dragons
    1.2 Viper Geckos
    1.1 Yellow-headed Cape Geckos
    0.1 Panther Geckos
    There'll be more, just you wait and see

      I thought it was one, but emerald tree skinks are more slender looking and dont have the bands like that one. I almost bought A pair, I am still considering them.

        I think your guess of Green Tree Skink (Lamprolepis smaragdina) is right. Maybe a sub species in Lamprolepis?

            that is Varanus prasinus, the emerald tree monitor. They are a very unique species, very hard to keep and are not a good first monitor.
            Yes they do have awesome stuff there,

            I love the
            Egernia Depressa,
            Cordylus sp.
            and the camian lizard!

              actually this is an Abronia, an arboreal alligator lizard form central (and/or southern?) America. this is one of my favorite species of lizards (remind me again, which lizard ISN'T my favorite?) and is closely related to the north american alligator lizards, except that they are arboreal (duh). This species is Abronia graminea. All alboreal alligator lizards are rare in the pet trade, and can range anywhere from 500$- $3,000$ each - rough estimate. The other "common" species, Abronia taeniata, have different color patterns, and can come in a variety of different morphs. All around an awesome lizard.
              the other photo doesn't even do it justice. http://www.flickr.com/photos/55138347@N08/5108183688/
