Ok without a picture lets see if anyone can help I.D. this lizard.

Was abandoned and I do not have any lizards so need some help.

The lizard is about 18 inches long, green with black rectangles along the back. It has a flattened head with ridges along the back. The lizard has long toes on each foot.
Was left inside abandoned office in a tank with a spider.

The lizards mouth is hanging open all the time.

Sounds like it could be a sick chameleon of some sort are the eyes like little turrets? Is the head flattened side to side, or from top to bottom (like an alligator)? Are the toes fused together and opposing like little pincers?

No not chameleon, I have been searching the web for picture I cannot find one. When I say flattened I mean on top of his head like an indention inward like a crater with a ridge. I am really trying to do my best to describe it.

It is a long skinny lizard with a pointed face indention in head; green, toes are not fused together, long tangle toes.
If I can find a database of pictures maybe I will have better luck.

Close, I have a picture now but no name.

Could it be a hatching iguana? They look similar.

You have a picture of the actual animal in your possession, or are you saying the link I provided was close? The link is for the green basilisk, Basiliscus plumifrons , and the individual is a female males have taller crests and more vibrant colors.
The knight anole suggested by another poster is also a possibility.
