Please don't take guesses on IDs, only answer if you're sure.

It's a southern angle headed dragon Lophosaurus spinipes.

Cheers, Cameron

Yep, this is it.

Are they normally this green? Or is this a weird colour? I thought they were more a brown?

It would help others to learn if you gave reasons for your ID.

That is not what is in the rules. What CF Constrictor did is encouraged, as he clearly stated he was uncertain of its identity. What he did not do, that is asked for, was to give reasons how it appears similar to a water dragon - such as similar body shape, angular head, well developed, continuous nuchal and vertebral crests.

They do vary in colour from brown to green. Unfortunately the green colour does not show up on my laptop image.
