Lizard ID request

I am leaning towards Acanthosaura , but the lack of crest confuses me.

Any ideas?

Thank you

Maybe Calotes. Looks like the crest has been removed, either way.

Zach,

Looks like a Gonocephalus to me. What's the story?

Apparently the lizard showed up at a person's classroom, as a donation, in a small glass tank with bearded dragon pellets as food.

Person was asking for an ID online, and I found it rather interesting.
