It appears that what you have are Latastia longicaudata. Based on the latin name I would call them long tailed lizards. Care is imilar as for the larger ameivas, but these guys do like a hotter basking spot. Definitely be sure to provide a burrowable substrate as well. I have not yet observed this species to take vegetable matter, so feed a variety of insects.
