I agree with sico, agama agama. Common names include: Rainbow Agama, Common Agama, and red-headed rock Agama. Don't think there are any for sale from large petstores. Your only hope, is a private breeder, but even then your chances are slim.

Your chances of getting one is virtually nil. They have been classed as invasive and no imports have been allowed for many years.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Those who are afraid to ask are ashamed of learning.
