@ Dondoucette, I think it is a latin name but this name is not very common among the people of rural areas of Afghanistan, in some part of Afghanistan people call this lizard Karbash. in Jun I have a one week tour to the highlands of central Afghanistan and hope that I can take some close up pictures of this lizard.
Today I will upload some more pictures of wild plants of Afghanistan.

It's cool to see pics from Afghanistan. Aahangar, I was looking up the common name of this lizard and a lizard in the US has the same common name. Do you know it's latin name? Or do you have a close up photo to help with ID?
I want to see more pics from Afghanistan.
