I would just like to add the original poster has no concept of what it takes to clone something nor the applications with which that technology is currently used.

The manner in which the poster suggested is science fiction. There is not any cloning of entire genomes into new organisms of that species from regular DNA samples. Plus the effort and money needed to pursue such an endeavor if it were possible is well beyond anything that will be funded for lizards or reptiles unless we find out monitor saliva cures cancer. Even then it would be very difficult.
