looks more like Forest calotes (Calotes rouxi).. Rock agamas are normally much bigger or i should say fatter and big headed. :)

I think its from the Calotes species not sure which one, there is a lot of missidentification on the web in this family, so would need to consult a book, ill keep my eyes peeled though!
